Exclusive interview of Wirtland’s Chancellor

On the occasion of 10 years anniversary of Wirtland, Chancellor of Wirtland has made a short interview to The Times of Wirtland. 10 year 1

Ten years have passed since you founded Wirtland. How can you assess the achievements?

We had our ups and downs, but most importantly, the influx of new people has never stopped during this 10 years period. Wirtland has survived and kept its attractiveness as alternative nation – that’s our most important achievement. Also, we managed to preserve our neutrality, which was not easy in the times of fierce international turmoil.

Some witizens complain about lack of activity in Wirtland. Can you comment?

We see our main task to establish Wirtland as a platform, and to keep it up, running, and operational. That’s what we have been doing successfully during the last decade. If level of activity is low that means that people are passive. Activities are now up to the citizens themselves – we just create the right conditions for them.

So, what should witizens expect from the government?

Wirtland was not set up to tax our members – we have a zero taxation policy. Wirtland was neither set up to entertain our members, by a regular flow of new initiatives and projects. We simply cannot afford this, because of zero taxation. I hope this is understandable. What we guarantee to citizens is the following:

  • Correct operation of Wirtland platform;
  • Full media support to citizens’ initiatives;
  • Protection of citizens’ personal data.

What should be done to further develop the Wirtland project?
