Primary Languages: English, Hindi, Mandarin
The anarchists that founded the Long Haul focus on liberating indentures and infugees locked in deep storage in other habitats. These freed egos are brought in batches to Long Haul, where they are given a new body and introduced to anarcho-collectivist ways of doing things. Since many people from Earth have only lived under capitalism, autonomist ways of doing things are sometimes alien. The Long Haul helps get them through this period of adjustment. After one year, the new anarchists are relocated to another autonomist habitat, so a new batch of infugees can be brought in. The Jovians and hypercorps call this place an indoctrination camp, but no one is required to stay. A small percentage do, in fact, decide that the anarchist lifestyle is not their thing, and so they opt to egocast elsewhere and take their chances. There has been at least one instance of inner system ego hunters kidnapping former infugees from Long Haul; the person in question made contact with long lost family in the inner system, but the relatives were convinced they had fallen into the hands of cultists and sent mercenaries to “rescue” them.
