Counterpoint on Seasteading

At various times, we have written about the idea of seasteading on this site.  The ABC’s Counterpoint program featured the topic earlier in the month.

Setting up new societies on gigantic platforms out at sea, well away from the authority of any existing state is what the seasteading movement hopes to achieve. Not everyone is convinced that it has a viable future. Brian Doherty assesses the progress made to date.

Brian Doherty’s recent article 20,000 Nations Above the Sea: Is floating the last, best hope for liberty? is also a worthwhile introduction to the topic.

The introduction was a doozy however. ‘Utopian Libertarians’ indeed!
