World famous denim entrepreneur Glenn Beck doesn’t just manufacture jeans. He manufactures dreams. American dreams!

And what’s he cooking up in that dream factory right now? Planned community-theme park hybrids, that’s what. Beck’s “Independence, USA” is a community built on the “principles of the free market” where families can “find happiness, inspiration, courage and hope.”

According to Beck’s website:

Glenn believes that he can bring the heart and the spirit of Walt’s early Disneyland ideas into reality. Independence, USA wouldn’t be about rides and merchandise, but would be about community and freedom. The Marketplace would be a place where craftmen and artisan could open and run real small businesses and stores. The owners and tradesmen could hold apprenticeships and teach young people the skills and entrepreneurial spirit that has been lost in today’s entitlement state.
