República Libre de Liberland
Encendida defensa del proyecto libertario Liberland, la nueva república libre en Europa, cerca de Croacia, por parte del profesor Juan Ramón Rallo, invitado a la cena-coloquio con el Presidente de la República Libre de Liberland Vít Jedlička, organizada por el Partido Libertario (P-LIB). Madrid, 5 de septiembre de 2015.
¿Es viable una república libre en medio de Europa?
De momento el proyecto sigue adelante, esperemos que se convierta en realidad.
Puede ser un interesante experimento social para descubrir la viabilidad de un Estado ultra mínimo partiendo de cero
Free Republic of Liberland is a sovereign state located between Croatia and Serbia on the west bank of the Danube river. The nearest towns are Zmajevac (Croatia) and Bački Monoštor (Autonomous Province of Vojvodina, Serbia). On some maps, this area is referred to as “Gornja Siga”.
Liberland came into existence due to a border dispute between Croatia and Serbia. This area along the west bank of the Danube river is not claimed by Croatia, Serbia or any other country. It was therefore terra nullius, a no man’s land, until Vít Jedlička seized the opportunity and on 13 April 2015 formed a new state in this territory – Liberland. The boundary was defined so as not to interfere with the territory of Croatia or Serbia. Its total area of approximately 7 km² is now the third smallest sovereign state, after the Vatican and Monaco. For more information regarding the border dispute between Croatia and Serbia see an article on Wikipedia.
The motto of Liberland is “To live and let live” because Liberland prides itself on personal and economic freedom of its people, which is guaranteed by the Constitution, which significantly limits the power of politicians so they could not interfere too much in the freedoms of the Liberland nation.
