Silicon Valley billionaire funding creation of artificial libertarian islands
Thiel has been a big backer of the Seasteading Institute, which seeks to build sovereign nations on oil rig-like platforms to occupy waters beyond the reach of law-of-the-sea treaties. The idea is for these countries to start from scratch--free from the laws, regulations, and moral codes of any existing place. Details says the experiment would be "a kind of floating petri dish for implementing policies that libertarians, stymied by indifference at the voting booths, have been unable to advance: no welfare, looser building codes, no minimum wage, and few restrictions on weapons."
it could have been an idea 100 years ago
maybe is still feasible as a millionnaire tax avoidance heaven
the Vatican should build itself one
but on the other hands, the idea of a "new age" society
could be fascinating as well
a society with no religion, no money and no morals
with restricted reproduction rights in vitro only
and where the only law is damage based
and damage is assessed with the ancient formula
"an eye for an eye"
a technocratic logistic society
based on a simple concept
"liberte', egalite', fraternite'"
something to think about
