A libertarian ‘floating city’ has been proposed by a free-thinking group.
Along with a group of like-minded individuals they have set out to create a libertarian utopia in which technology and ideas will be shared freely.
The desired place for this new floating city is set to be in Tahiti, French Polynesia, where the company have already set up an agreement with the government.
Their mission, they say is to:
“…establish permanent, autonomous ocean communities to enable experimentation and innovation with diverse social, political, and legal systems…”
The website also states:
“Seasteading will create unique opportunities for aquaculture, vertical farming, and scientific and engineering research into ecology, wave energy, medicine, nanotechnology, computer science, marine structures, biofuels, etc,”
An eco-lovers dream, the environment is set to be sustained by renewable energy sources, the greatest scientific minds available to them implementing high-tech systems.
They desire to build the floating island far out to sea on concrete platforms measuring 50 meters squared, large and strong enough to hold three-story buildings on them.
While the commune would have to follow the laws of the land, their goal would be to live by a totally different set of standards than ‘normal’ society.
An environment such as this would not doubt give birth to a culture of enlightenment, solidarity and community.
They wish to use their above-average knowledge of science to bring cutting-edge innovation ions to the world.
Their statement says “Accelerating innovation is rapidly transforming the world: The Seasteading Institute will help bring more of that innovation to the public sector, where it’s vitally needed,”
“Decades from now, those looking back at the start of the century will understand that Seasteading was an obvious step towards encouraging the development of more efficient, practical public-sector models around the world.”
