Too good to be true?

  • While land in Argentina is notably affordable, the modest $250USD fee remains exceptionally economical, even by local standards. Our intention is to maintain this affordability to foster participation, enabling a diverse range of individuals to allocate their resources toward constructing personal residences or businesses, rather than accumulating funds ourselves.

  • Our community operates on a decentralized model, refraining from providing internal services, as we trust in the initiative and capabilities of our members. Consequently, post the initial development phase, no central authority wielding a monopoly will exist within the community. Notably, residents will not be subject to any annual fees for their continued residency.

  • It is imperative to underscore that the success of this endeavor is heavily reliant on the active involvement of our community members. The project hinges on collective participation rather than relying on a cadre of investors anticipating substantial returns at the expense of residents.

Our emphasis is on:

  1. Member Attraction through Strategic Marketing Efforts: Employing targeted marketing strategies to attract prospective members to our community.

  2. Establishing the Essential Legal Framework for Thriving Community Operations: Formulating and implementing the requisite legal framework essential for the sustained growth and prosperity of the community.

  3. Enforcing Initial Rules for Community Development: Vigilantly enforcing a select set of foundational rules crucial for guiding the community through its initial stages of development until it transitions to a more advanced phase, characterized by a self-sustaining and autonomous state.

The initiative is spearheaded by seasoned anarcho-capitalists and agorists Giacomo Zamagni, Leonardo Facco, and Alessandro Fusillo, who also serve on the board of the Italian Libertarian Movement—an established movement boasting a 15-year history and a substantial following in Italy. Focused on an agoristic approach to liberty and harboring skepticism toward political endeavors, the trio meticulously deliberated over the ideal location for their community. After thorough discussions, they ultimately chose Argentina as the setting for their venture.

Allow us a touch of humor as we assert that the founders are so committed to realizing a truly anarcho-capitalist community within their lifetime that, paradoxically, if there were any sinister motives behind Los Propietarios project, the proceeds would still find their way towards the establishment of such community. Therefore, there is truly no need for apprehension, founders and team’s intentions are absolutely genuine.

We have chosen a distinct path by prioritizing a departure from a centralized profit-driven approach and instead centering our efforts on attracting a robust community of anarchists. Our project diverges from the conventional objective of generating returns for initial investors, opting instead to cultivate a community founded on a steadfast anarchist framework, free from a central legal authority in the long term.

The success of this endeavor hinges significantly on your active involvement and efforts to promote and build the community. Membership fees are necessary to acquire land and facilitate development.

Our profit model is designed to yield minimal returns, contingent upon a substantial number of individuals becoming members and actively participating in this collective venture. Upon achieving self-sufficiency, our commitment is to discontinue operations, eschewing any desire to become overlords of the community.

We are currently exploring several viable land options, and the specific parcel we acquire will be contingent upon members participation and financing. It is anticipated that the selected land will likely be situated in either the Rio Negro Province or the San Luis Province.

The availability of the land to settlers is contingent upon the timing of project funding. Upon successful fundraising, the land will be acquired, and following the completion of the hotel/club construction, it will be open for homesteading processes by the members.

Upon the land being prepared for settlement, Members are afforded the opportunity to obtain possession of a lot through the following process:

  1. Notification via Email: Members must communicate their claim to a specific lot by notifying us through email.

  2. Community Notification through Visible Signage: Members must also make their claim known to the wider community by visibly marking the chosen premise.

  3. Utilization through Homesteading or Business Development: Members must solidify their claim by actively using the land for homesteading or business development.

Lots are selected by Members upon their arrival at the premises, this process continues until all lots are duly assigned.

PLEASE NOTE: Just joining the project on the website doesn’t grant any lot of land, only homesteading does.

The homesteading process can be delegated to individuals or companies. You can also use Agora Marketplace to find them.

The objective of the homesteading procedure is to confer a meaningful purpose upon the land through the amalgamation of human labor with the natural environment. To qualify as duly homesteaded, the land must manifestly exhibit use, amelioration, and development, even if such activities transpire at a gradual pace.

By way of illustration, during an initial phase, an individual may elect to reside in a tent, van, or camper on their own land without impedance, as the focus lies on progressive, ongoing development and improvement of living conditions. Furthermore, the land may be employed for the provision of services or the operation of an automated business, with the pivotal criterion being the operational viability of such endeavors rather than any semblance of contrived homesteading activities.

As a final note, while the urban development of lands is taken to great consideration, the human factor holds even greater importance for us than mere urbanization. To illustrate an extreme case, a preference would rather be accorded to scenarios wherein a hundred individuals inhabit tents while continuously enhancing their living conditions, as opposed to the existence of a hundred aesthetically pleasing yet uninhabited houses. It is recognized that these two aspects may coalesce synergistically.

Ownership is a societally defined construct, manifesting in various nuanced degrees. For instance, one may possess legal ownership of a residence within the purview of governmental authorities, yet within that domicile, individual rooms may be subject to distinct ownership by other occupants, such as one’s progeny.

Similarly, while the land is formally registered under the aegis of a Trust Company according to governmental oversight, internal community dynamics dictate ownership through a framework rooted in libertarian principles. The Trust Company, vested with the land’s legal ownership vis-à-vis the government, functions as a protective intermediary, enhancing the lives of its members and facilitating an environment conducive to liberty. Its primary purpose lies in establishing a legal infrastructure that fosters the community’s expansion.

Upon reaching a critical mass, the Trust Company may contemplate closure of operations and the subsequent transfer of governmental ownership to individual members. This transitional phase ensures congruence between internal and governmental records. However, the individual recognition of ownership by government entities may prove inconvenient for some members. In such instances, those members may opt to retain the services of the Trust Company.

In the first three years following the Member’s settlement, the Company possesses the authority to unilaterally decide for expulsion or enforcement of disciplinary measures against Members whose conduct jeopardizes the safety or welfare of the community or conflicts with the ethos and objectives of the project. Beyond this initial period, any disputes between the Company and Members must be addressed through non-coercive methods, such as mediation or arbitration, in alignment with libertarian principles. It is important to note that, even after the initial three years, in case of serious crimes, a Member could still be expelled if so decided by a dispute resolution agency. In such cases, the properties of the expelled member are put up for sale in the Community market.

There exists no formalized association between the government and the community, and neither the community nor the trust company enjoys any conferred special privileges or preferential treatment. It is crucial to emphasize that the pursuit of freedom is not predicated upon government approval, as the solicitation for freedom would paradoxically imply a subservient status. Instead, the realization of freedom is contingent upon individual initiative.

It is our position that an autarkic model may not be conducive to the optimal development of the community. However, we recognize the practicality and convenience of individual members achieving a certain level of self-sufficiency. The determination of the appropriate equilibrium between community interdependence and individual self-sufficiency is left to the discretion of each member. It is imperative to clarify that our objective is not to establish an autarky, as we acknowledge the tangible benefits derived from economies of scale and the division of labor. Our primary concern lies in fostering accelerated and enhanced growth through these principles.
