A town for paranoid right-wingers planned in Idaho

HERE‘s a place where people like me — and people like you, I would hope — won’t be welcome:

A group of self-appointed “patriots” are moving forward with an idea for a planned community of several thousand families of “patriotic Americans” in Idaho, a project named The Citadel, envisioned as a “martial endeavor designed to protect Residents in times of peril (natural or man-made).”

“The Citadel is not profit-driven. The Citadel is Liberty-driven: specifically Thomas Jefferson’s Rightful Liberty,” the group organizing the project says on its website. “Marxists, Socialists, Liberals and Establishment Republicans will likely find that life in our community is incompatible with their existing ideology and preferred lifestyles.”

    Hmm- I wonder how they’re going to get past the various elements of socialism like roads, water, sewer, garbage, police & fire, schools… heck, even our timekeeping is socialized. I do like the idea though; it would be handy to have a single place to put all the nutcases to keep them out of the way while we build a better nation…

  2. Europe’s full of them they’re called castles which went into decline in the Middle Ages.
