If you're like me, you often wonder what life would be like living elsewhere. It's not that life here isn't great, it's that it is okay and familiar.
With ever encroaching assaults on our liberty from government, I wonder sometimes where we go when America falls. We were the last frontier where all of the people dissatisfied with government could go and start afresh. Sam Corcos often asks me, "Is there any place that still has liberty?" and I joke, "space, the final frontier."
"Government is an industry with a really high barrier to entry," [Patri Friedman] said. "You basically need to win an election or a revolution to try a new one. That's a ridiculous barrier to entry. And it's got enormous customer lock-in. People complain about their cellphone plans that are like two years, but think of the effort that it takes to change your citizenship."
