    Here is a business that is already thriving by shuttling people out to a boat far enough out in the Gulf to allow for gambling.

    I have gone out to this casino. It is just a two story (with a top deck) boat with casino games.

    They shuttle people out by the hundreds each day. They even provide bus service to go and get people inland and bring them to the shuttle.

    Casinos definitely thrive. A casino resort on the sea would pay for itself quickly.

    In many countries where gambling is forbidden by law, offshore casinos and bingoes do a lot of profit. In Brazil, for example (Where I do live), a cruiseship with other country’s flag yields a lot of profit with gambling.

    It produces no food, no shelter, no sanitation, no education, no transportation, no biomedical support, no human necessities, nor any of the art or literature that keeps us from each others’ throats when we’re snowed in… in short, negligible redeeming social value. In any human population, an estimated 5% are predisposed to gambling addiction.  I refuse to enable this human tragedy, to benefit from it personally, to covet my neighbors’ wealth, or to give native populations this excuse to legalize and open their own casinos in attempted competition.  Gambling is a mass delusion in which I refuse to participate.  There are more valuable things that seasteads can do, more normal values that we can endorse.

    I don’t know if I can persuade anyone else to take the moral high ground here, to do something useful with the mind you were blessed with.  The choice is yours, whether you want to do this through invention and industry, or to kickstart your seastead project by appealing to the basest of human nature by opening a casino, founding a pyramid club or writing a chain letter.  Choose this day whom you will serve, but as for me and my house….
