Welcome to Village Libre
Village Libre is a non-profit initiative to demonstrate that society
can prosper only from voluntary exchanges.
Village Libre is an autonomous community living on a territory and agreeing to the non-aggression
principle (the rule of not harming others and never initiating violence).
"In a free society there is work and bread for everyone."
Quote inspired from Ludwig von Mises, Socialism, Social Evolution,
We believe a society free from coercion unlocks innovation and
entrepreneurship, which creates employment opportunities for the whole
population. We also believe there is more equality and prosperity in
a society where everyone is equal before the law, rather than a society run by
an elite imposing their rules on the population. Our goal is creating a
society where the people have the power to govern themselves, and where the laws
are made to protect the property rights of each and every individual, regardless of
status, skin color, gender or religion.
If you believe democracy is the best form of government, then it also means you
agree with the following principle: democracy is the right of people to
govern themselves. Consequently, if people have the right to
choose a leader, then people have the right to vote with their feet
and move to a different place and elect a leader of their choosing.
The mission of this website is recruiting people who are tired of
the current political system and considering moving where freedom
shines. People who are happy with their government(s) shall stay home.
We respect your choices and politely ask you to respect the way we choose to
