Glenn Beck Planning To Construct $2 Billion Libertarian Community In Texas

Conservative radio host Glenn Beck is planning to construct a self-sustaining libertarian community in Texas to the tune of $2 billion, the Dallas Observer reported on Friday.

The community, which Beck dubs “Independence Park,” does not have a specified location yet, but it will be styled after “Galt’s Gulch,” a fictional utopian commune in Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged.” 

More details from Right Wing Watch:

On his program last night, Beck revealed that his intention to “go Galt” is quite literal, unveiling grandiose plans to create an entirely self-sustaining community called Independence Park that will provide its own food and energy, produce television and film content, host research and development, serve as a marketplace for products and ideas, while also housing a theme park and serving as a residential community.

At the center – in the middle of the lake that is itself larger than all of Disney Land – Beck (with the help of David Barton) will create a massive “national archive”/learning center where people can send their children to be “deprogrammed” and elected officials can come to learn “the truth.”
