The Free Lunch Project is an agreement among 20,000 progressive and communitarian activists and/or voters to move from New Hampshire to one state/country, where they will exert the fullest practical effort toward the creation of a society in which the minimum role of government is the protection of the citizens of the world, the general welfare, the environment, and the future of The Children. The success of the project would likely entail additional taxation of wealthy individuals/businesses, strict regulation of corporations and firearms, reforms at all levels of government to expand group rights and fair markets, and a restoration of true social democracy, demonstrating the benefits of equality to the rest of the world.
In spite of the brave efforts of several thousand progressive activists to make New Hampshire more like the rest of New England, the fight for our state's working families has fallen short. Our community of activists has faced an uphill battle against New Hampshire's traditional stubborn opposition to forward-thinking government initiatives. Unfortunately, the future looks even more dismal as our state faces an influx of so-called "liberty lovers" who seek to dismantle the beneficial programs for which we've fought so hard. What good is liberty when so many go hungry?
However, there is hope. Forty-nine other states and many countries around the world show much more promise for our vision of community. From this vast pool of promising locations, we have selected eighteen states and three nations which seem especially inviting. The Free Lunch Project seeks to enhance the culture of our chosen state/nation by providing all people* with the basic needs of life without resorting to the selfish inequalities of the marketplace. Join us in making empty lunchboxes a thing of the past. If it helps just one child, won't it have been worth it?
