Sandy Springs, GA: Model of Libertarian LivingSubmitted by McWilly on Tue, 03/12/2013 - 13:09
I read some news items yesterday about Atlanta’s descent into the next Detroit due to its levels of corruption, terrible management of funds and social issues. Do to these shortcomings, a logical trend has been sweeping the northern suburbs: cities seceding from Atlanta to save themselves. That in itself isn’t abundantly amazing, but Reason TV did an 8 minute mini-documentary on a city named Sandy Springs, which had seceded previously from Atlanta and has had incredible success economically and socially by outsourcing everything. We have long been proponents of this practice (as many good libertarian thinkers are) and having a working model to point to is nothing short of exhilarating. This film was made in 2011 – shame on us for not knowing about it until now!
