I would like to see a Hessian colony somewhere in North America within five years. I think it's not only possible, but probable, as we all get lonelier as our ur-culture disintegrates.North American Hessian Community
I was surprised at the amount of Hessian types in Texas (ie more than 2). My first suggestion would be establish something there. The least favourable aspect is the heat.
I see two barriers that need to be overcome:
- This tops the list. Can't do anything without money. Anyone that has 'established' themselves on a career path may find it harder to move from (say) New York to Texas. I'd imagine it would be easier for those yet to start a serious career.
2) Place to live
- I see this as an easier one to solve. Ideally, get a big plot of land and use any existing buildings to house those coming into the community.
The same outcome will not be achieved by many people merely living in the same city.
The above list may change as the community evolves. Nor do you need to be a professor in cryptography in order to solve them. Fortunately, there is already the organization in place to help solve this and there are quite a few Hessians within the US.Europeans emmitgrating to the USA
This would not be an easy task. To get a visa, one would need to have secured a job or a college/ university position.
It is possible to get a short term visa in order to work in the US (eg. as part of a gap year). But I doubt that they will issue a visa indefinitely if you are working in a retail store.
This is when it would perhaps be easier to be a 'professional'.
Flights are actually quite cheap, one way. It isn't much of a cost if you are actually moving there.Europeans moving around Europe
Europeans that wish to visit another EU country can do so easily, without paperwork.
Emmigrating from one country to another shouldn't be too difficult neither, if the massive influx of Czechs and Poles into the UK is a standard of measurement.
Flights around Europe are very cheap. With all the budget airlines that we have I can't see the cost of a flight (within) Europe being more than £100, one way.

The main problem for Europe is the lack of Hessians. Or at least, the lack of organization. I can't think of a European equivalent to ANUS.
5 years is a good goal for a US based Hessian community. Where as it may be closer to 7 - 10 years before we see anything noteworthy in Europe.
That said, whenever the Tribes project builds momentum we might just see something sooner than expected:National Tribes
