Is it real, or is it just a gimmick?
Is it an idea worthwhile to look at, or is it just something of people who want to fool the world or to make fun?
In the North of Europe some people created a Principality of Lorenzburg, a nation with, and without, borders. Though the physical expansion co-incides with an independent area in the city of Karlstad Sweden. According to the website
the true Lorenzburg is an unseen idea-nation without borders. Everyone, without exception, is welcome in the unseen etheric Lorenzburg. You are welcome as a citizen regardless of ethnicity, creed or previous history. The Department for Open Borders is tasked with keeping the borders open and refusing none: Come as you are, become whatever you want!
The makers of the place do find culture, both as collective and private practice, important to Lorenzburg which has to become a
a haven for visionaries, geniuses, innovators and all other people who think outside the box.
They even created a “University of Science and Innovation” which has to become
an active resource in the careful and sustainable use and development of the intellectual and innovative capital in Lorenzburg.
It may all look good fun but this micronation of Lorenzburg which wants to be
a refuge for visionaries, free thinkers, queers, artists, scientists and all others. The nation shall promote the human rights to emancipation and wellbeing.
Lorenzburg shall be a a role-model in terms of neighborliness with the surrounding nations, a wise use of natural resources and providing the citizens with means for a good and true life in accordance with personal conviction and talent
carries a lot of values we have been fighting already a long time for.
since centuries utopists like me have looked for ways to build up a nation which can carry freedom and peace for all its citizens.
Many people on the same thinking lines wanted and did promote peace, understanding and freedom within the world community.
Lorenzburg says also it wants to encourage collective and individual acts of solidarity both locally and globally, and in the past that is also what several in the 19th century would have loved to see to happen.
I am very curious how the people behind Lorenzburg shall make it possible to have their community be a benefactor and protector for the furthering and diversity in the arts and the sciences and how they can create a
a spiritual refuge for any individual who wants to deepen their sovereign right to a unique and personal expression and the right to be the primary interpreter of their own personal narrative.
