the PT concept & three flag theory

learn about becoming a Permanent Tourist

"No great man of letters is absorbed by the stream in which he swims." - Chaim Potok


The basis of PT three flag theory is:

  • Have your citizenship somewhere that does not tax income earned outside the country.
  • Have your businesses and speculations in stable, low or no tax countries.
  • Live as a tourist in countries where what you esteem is valued, not outlawed.

Those are the three flags that you may choose to represent parts of your life. Some PTs add even more flags to create a five flag theory - the level of complication is up to you - it is your life.

most countries treat tourists far better than their own citizens

Most governments assume they own their citizens. Like cattle their citizens are herded, penned, branded, milked, and slaughtered. Tourists on the other hand are like art exhibits on loan and usually are treated carefully and well -- tourists bring in cash. Seek to define yourself so that others will naturally support your choices.

As a permanent tourist it is you, not some vague group, that owns your life. It is possible to live your life as a sovereign individual, as a PT. You will still have to deal with other sovereignties - but frequently the advantage can now be yours.

You may think it is horrible to escape being owned by the government where you were born. In that case don't consider seeking to break your serfdom by becoming an expatriate (expat); instead relish the slavery you were born into. That can also be your choice.


"It's not an endlessly expanding list of rights - the 'right' to education, the 'right' to health care, the 'right' to food and housing. That's not freedom, that's dependency. Those aren't rights, those are the rations of slavery - hay and a barn for human cattle." - Alexis De Tocqueville (1805-1859)


If you are free you can give away as much of the fruits of your labor as you wish - where you wish.

It is impossible to find a less efficient way of giving to a need or helping others than letting a bureaucracy control your giving. As a social slave your government steals your labor's reward - takes a large cut for themselves off the top - and passes on a small part; expecting your gratitude.

There is no virtue in this forced charity. "The mice which helplessly find themselves between the cat's teeth acquire no merit from their enforced sacrifice." - Mahatma Gandhi

There is evil in those that get others to do for them what is obviously wrong for them to do directly. If it is not right for someone to steal your property or restrict your life, how does it suddenly become right when they get government bureaucrats to steal and restrict for them?

"Where liberty dwells, there is my country." - Benjamin Franklin

Find Liberty:

There are many ways to find a bit of freedom in this slavery prone world. There are links in the articles to the right, there are PT books to be read. Find the way that is right for you - live your own life.

Click here to read Harry Schultz on being a perpetual tourist or PT - This is good information that is not easily found. There are also available reprints, now in PDF downloadable format, of Dr. W. G. Hill's original books, including PT -- The Perpetual Tourist. Dr. Hill's personal sovereignty books can be the road map to your PT lifestyle.

You will also find some information on Possibility Thinking at the Bastiat Free University College of Liberty.

You may also want to add to your income stream. There are Properly Transportable financial freedom tools - find a business that fits you.

There are ways for you to escape if you wish, they all start with the realization that you were not born to be someone's employee and slave - you were schooled to be that way.

"Whenever is found what is called a paternal government, there is found state education. It has been discovered that the best way to ensure implicit obedience is to commence tyranny in the nursery." - Benjamin Disraeli

You have the capability to prosper, but you will have to rediscover how to enjoy learning and creating. Becoming a Permanent Tourist may be right for you; as a sovereign individual live your own meaning of PT - such as:

Perpetual Traveler

Paper Tripper

Prior Taxpayer

Possibility Thinker

Post Tyranny

Privacy Tactician.

Perception Transformed

Preparing for Tomorrow


You are free to invent your own PT lifestyle.

"Man is free at the moment he wishes to be." - Voltaire
