explorersfoundation.org/lionrock.html— a vortex is a region of Explorers Foundation research and investment.
 
This vortex exists to study and support a China that is an openspace, a balance of designed and spontaneous orders that creates the best social and legal framework to support the full expression of the virtues of the explorer, beginning with personal integrity in thought and venture.
 
This page is full of undeveloped ideas, fragments and traces of conversation. Inquiries welcome (see “contact” above).

Tom Palmer: “The principles of liberty are not culturally bound”
*
See “Freedom Is the Birthright of All Humanity” ••• January 5, 2017, a remarkable essay. To see what I mean, start reading with the footnotes, which for me were so engaging and revelatory that a study of the entire essay seemed essential. Palmer is one of the great teachers of freeorder, and he has personally touched almost every country in the world. -ls

Kwan, Her Story: from Hong Kong 2016 to New Victoria 2036
a major city to arise on the coast of northwest Australia
Kwan, once active for Hong Kong freedom, is now, in the year 2036, living in New Victoria, a major city on the northwest coast of Australia, part of a CANZUK Union that began after Brexit.

Question: If an investment to advance freeorder were to be made such that it had a positive effect in China, how would it be done? How would the investor be assured of doing more good than harm? See the history of Transition Institute, Beijing. Also, perhaps, study the actions of Karol Wojtyla, the man who became Pope John Paul II in Poland while the USSR was still in control, a story told in John O’Sullivan’s The President, the Pope and the Prime Minister, reviewed ••• by Spengler. If EF had, $10,000 to invest in moving China toward freeorder, where would we invest it? Maybe not in China? Haywood’s strategy of incremental changes propagating into the entire culture although first innocuoulsy established in Special Economic Zones might be fundamental. … Mongolia?
