#2 Sovereignty is the supreme authority within a territory. In any state, sovereignty is assigned to the person, body, or institution that has the ultimate authority over other people in order to establish a law or change an existing law.

#3 Sounds like the old-type Company Towns where the Company owned everything and you never earn enough to get out of debt to the 'company store':

To the song "16 Tons" by Merle Travis:

Some people say a man is made outta mud
A poor man's made outta muscle and blood
Muscle and blood and skin and bone
A mind that's weak and a back that's strong

You code 16 Gig and what do you get?
Another day older and deeper in debt!
Saint Peter don't call me cause i can't go!
I owe my soul to the Company Store.

#4 Bill Gates Largest Land Owner in America The real landowner is the entity that sets the tax rates, whoever or whatever that turns out to be. If Bill doesn't pay his real estate tax, he will lose his real estate.

#6 The precedent was already set by CHAZ/CHOP:

A big city neighborhood was subjected to a tyrannical and deadly warlord regime.

The mayor's say-so was sufficient.

The Trump administration didn't intervene then. Biden won't intervene against this proposal either.

You'll own nothing and you'll be happy.

Nuts!

#7 Ann Arkey5221, the original AP article on which the Populist Press thing was based states that

The measure to further economic development with the “alternative form of local government” has not yet been introduced in the Legislature.

This pretty much contradicts the PP headline. Please submit the original articles, not the PP clickbait.
