Titus Gebel

– Entrepreneur and inventor of the Free Private Cities concept –

For the first time, there is now a viable alternative to Western democracies that doesn’t lead to benevolent dictatorship but offers maximum self-determination.

– Titus Gebel –

Foreword to the third edition of Free Private Cities

The book Free Private Cities is available as paperback in the third, revised version with seven new chapters on Amazon.


In his book, Titus Gebel has a well-considered answer up his sleeve to all doubts, objections and points of criticism. If Gebel succeeds, he will make many people happy. If he fails, he loses his own money. Fair enough.

There’s many, many exciting and important things you could do that you just can’t do, because they’re not allowed by regulation. And that makes sense, we don’t want our world to change too fast. But maybe we should set aside some small part of the world where we can try out some new things and figure out: What is the effect on society? And people who like those kinds of things can go there and experience that.

Larry Page, Co-Founder of Google

I read this book with enormous pleasure. No fallacy can stop the power of an idea that has been articulated by a leader who can make it happen.

Joe Quirk, The Seasteading Institute

An outstanding and convincing exposition on the philosophy of government and of the value of Free Private Cities.

In 1620 a mere 102 passengers boarded the Mayflower and built a new world. Maybe Gebel and his fellow enthusiasts are the modern-day equivalent.

At last, an entrepreneur is taking the only entrepreneurial path to political reform: not loudly politicking in echo chambers, not the hubris of prescribing ‘solutions’ from the top down, but voluntary offerings at one’s own risk to create alternatives from below. In his work, Titus Gebel provides the most comprehensive and in-depth presentation to date of a genuine competitive principle in politics.

History, which is one long record of the imbecilities and the injustices of governments, furnishes us good grounds for seeking some alternative solution for them.
