    Lately there has been a lot in the news about this NSA whistleblower and the difficulties he will likely have in finding asylum.

     

    This gave me an idea. Asylum/political tourism. This could be an excellent source of revenue for any sea-steading community out there.

     

    Maybe someone will launch a “Blueseed” for would be asylum seekers?

    If a Government wants someone they will come in and get them, a seastead cannot protect anyone from abduction or assasination.

    You would have to be flying a “flag of convenience” of some country that gives asylum (since you will be under the laws of that country) and which would back you to the hilt in providing a haven for asylum seekers.

     

    Assuming that such a country even exists, it would probably be simpler for the asylum seeker to just go to that country rather than to seek asylum on a seastead.
