    John Galton Wanted Libertarian Paradise in ‘Anarchapulco.’ He Got Bullets Instead.

    There is just too much going on in this article not to share. From a "libertarian paradise" mostly focused on weed, to the influence of the cartels on life in Mexico, to the idea of anarcho-capitaliststs.
    John Galton and his girlfriend Lily Forester had finally made it. On a March 2017 evening, the young American couple sat on their balcony above Acapulco, Mexico, counting their blessings. They’d recently moved into a big house on a mountainside and were eyeing an ambitious push into the artisanal bong business.

    Galton and Forester were anarcho-capitalists who slipped U.S. drug charges worth 25 years in prison, they said in a YouTube video that night. They’d hopped the border and resettled in what Galton called one of the world’s “pockets of freedom,” a community billed as a libertarian paradise.

    Almost two years later, Galton was murdered.

    Last week, gunmen burst into the couple’s mountaintop home, killing Galton on the spot, and seriously wounding one of the couple’s friends. (Forester survived, badly shaken.) The killers are presumed to be a drug cartel; Mexican authorities say Galton grew marijuana at the home.

    Galton was part of a small community of fellow anarcho-capitalists formed by Jeff Berwick, who promised a drug-friendly haven and hosts the annual “Anarchapulco” festival. Berwick says Galton and Forester should’ve known what they were getting into.

    “They started up a competing conference to Anarchapulco, called Anarchaforko and John continued to be involved in one way or another with the production or sale of plants,” Berwick told The Daily Beast in an email. “Unfortunately, that is the one thing that is very dangerous to do in Mexico as the drug cartels will attack anyone they see as competition and that appears to have happened to John.”

    Anarchapulco will go on as scheduled next week and might be even bigger due to the murder, Berwick says.

    Kind of long article, but again, there just seems to be a great deal of stuff wrapped up in this situation.

    They'd have been safer in an American jail.
