Glenn believes that he can bring the heart and the spirit of Walt’s early Disneyland ideas into reality. Independence, USA wouldn’t be about rides and merchandise, but would be about community and freedom. The Marketplace would be a place where craftmen and artisan could open and run real small businesses and stores. The owners and tradesmen could hold apprenticeships and teach young people the skills and entrepreneurial spirit that has been lost in today’s entitlement state.
Across the lake, there would be a church modelled after The Alamo which would act as a multi-denominational mission center. The town will also have a working ranch where visitors can learn how to farm and work the land.
Working this in reverse order, I don’t think people are prevented from setting up an agrarian Galt-farm of their very own from a lack of knowledge about how to “work the land.” I think it has to do with how farming is a quick path to OMGBROKE.
Also, the church will be modelled after The Alamo? So Mexicans will invade it eventually? I’m okay with this.
ALSO I’m kind of having a hard time believing in the ability to build a whole new Galt’s Gulch theme park when Beck can’t even hire a copy editor for his own web site.
What rides would YOU like to see in this independent community paradise?
