I was talking to a buddy the other day and he called the whole concept "warmed-over feudalism," asking "who do you think will call the shots in this 'patriot paradise?'" He added, "Once they've got the investors' money, even if they ever get that God-forsaken patch of undeveloped land put into livable shape with OPM and people move in, it will be Kerodin and Company who rule it. . . It reminds me of the Jim Jones character 'The Governor' who runs that Georgia town in 'The Walking Dead.'" (MBV Note: 'OPM' is his shorthand for 'Other People's Money,' which my friend pronounces as 'opium.')
LATER: The collectivists pile on: Yet more on poster boy Kerodin.
