The Unbalanced Evolution Of Homo Sapiens
Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak announced a plan to launch so-called Innovation Zones in Nevada to jumpstart the state’s economy by attracting technology firms, Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Wednesday.
The zones would permit companies with large areas of land to form governments carrying the same authority as counties, including the ability to impose taxes, form school districts and courts and provide government services.
The zones would initially operate with the oversight of their location counties, but would eventually take over county duties and become independent governmental bodies.
The zones would have three-member supervisor boards with the same powers as county commissioners. The businesses would maintain significant control over board membership.
21st century corporate feudalism in the USA. No more voting at all.
To be on terminological safe ground, what the Nevada governor proposed would presumably not be called ‘feudalism’, but presumably the most extreme form of ‘fascism’ possible.
