I like your idea, however I don't like the "socialism" part. What would work and what would ensure maximum freedom and liberty, is true capitalism,
driven by an open, free and decentralized market in the likes of Austrian economics. The point being that you don't want force initiated against you.
With socialism, force would be constantly applied against you, pretty much making liberty non-existent. With true capitalism under an Austrian
economic system, force should never be applied against you. Your own free will is what will guide your own life, for better or worse. If you want to
be rich, you go ahead and do that, if you don't, you go ahead and do that. You pull your own weight and you should never have to pull the weight for
someone else, unless you decide to do it. You should have maximum liberty to do as you please, as long as your liberty doesn't impede on the liberty
The problem with our current brand of "capitalism", besides being Keynesian, is that it is not a free market and their is rampant favoritism. Force
is applied against us all of the time and liberty is non-existent. We pull the weight of others all the time, which equates to force being initiated
against us. Laws are passed that force us to patronize certain companies. This is the favoritism shown, between government and certain corporations or
interest groups, which makes a free market impossible.

Also, there is a movement in New Hampshire called Free State Project or FSP
The Free State Project is an agreement among 20,000 pro-liberty activists to move to New Hampshire, where they will exert the fullest practical effort
toward the creation of a society in which the maximum role of government is the protection of life, liberty, and property. The success of the Project
would likely entail reductions in taxation and regulation, reforms at all levels of government, to expand individual rights and free markets, and a
restoration of constitutional federalism, demonstrating the benefits of liberty to the rest of the nation and the world.
Basically, what they are trying to do, is tip the voting scales in that small state by getting liberty loving Americans to move there. Then, by
enforcing the 10th Amendment of the Constitution, they would get the federal government to but out of their lives. So, if they can tip the voting
scales in that state, they can bring freedom and liberty to their area. You should read about the project from the link posted up top.
