Minimalist Rules for Sortocracy

Minimalist Rules for Sortocracy:

  1. All States* are recognized as having legitimate power to control entry to their territories by anyone for any reason whatsoever.
  2. All States are obligated to provide relocation for anyone, and their dependents, requesting emigration. This does _not_ necessarily include relocation of capital assets claimed as “property” by those emigrating. Their dependents include any children that have not been given up for adoption.
  3. States are allocated territory by individual adults receiving a land rent stream that the State in which they reside may demand for the purpose of acquiring control of land for its residents.
  4. If no other State will accept a relocating emigrant, a State of Nature must be set aside in which human eusociality is suppressed by rules enforcing individual sovereignty, including death penalty and deadly natural duel as nature’s preferred dispute processing of last resort.

This eliminates prisons, war over territory and tyranny in all its forms including liberal democracy’s tyranny of the majority limited only by a vague laundry list of selectively enforced “human rights”.

*The word “State” as used here designates a body politic testing a particular social theory.

    Estimating the land rent stream using the United States as an example:

    Total land value of the United States (according to the Federal Reserve) is $15 trillion, supporting 315 million people of which 250 million are adults. This is $60k land value per adult citizen. Historic land lease rates are between 5% and 10% of land value per annum. A citizen’s dividend earmarked for territorial allocation to sort proponents of social theories into governments that test them would be between $250 and $500 per month.
