    Just noticed this when I had the burning man website and this one open side by side:

    I’m not sure that’s entirely a coincidence. I’ve heard multiple mentions of burning man before because of it’s similarities. Whether it is a deliberate adaptation or merely an artistic similarity, I still think it’s a good logo. The spar as humanity (or people or individuality) can only be illustrated in so many different ways. Many stylized human forms are similar just because there are only so many ways to do it and I think this one fits in well with the dual-purpose nicely.

    The concepts are similar. Leaving “society” and experimenting on different forms of art, versus leaving “society” and experimenting on different forms of laws and government.

    And, like the adage goes: Seasteading (or Ephemerisle) with no Laws is like Burning Man with no Art.

    I haven’t come across that one yet. I think Burning man is pro-art, while many in seasteading are anti-law… or at least wants fewer of them.

    The point of Seasteading is to experiment with which laws work best. It may turn out that pure anarchy does so, but few chemically balanced individuals truly have that view. We need to find out what is best, and have that duplicated to the four corners of the Earth.

    Please elaborate.

    When discussing anarchy vs state the level (or size) of the jurisdiction matters, I think. Most would probably agree that anarchy would work poorly in the smaller units, like family, or village. A lot fewer would agree that a world (or indeed universe) government is a good idea.

    I believe sea steading is a good potential haven for those who want to actually be free. I’m in it for the anarchy.

    Sea steading appeals to political dissidents and political dissidents are the ones who will most likely be the pioneers of this project (ie: the ones mostly likely to take the dive because they take their ideology and morality seriously).

    PS. I don’t drink or smoke.

    Revolution starts in the mind.

    It depends how you define anarchy. My guess is that you define it as “absence of laws/government”, which is not how anarcho-capitalists (the others on this thread) define it.

    The logo similarity is no coincidence – the idea for the logo was mine, and it is meant to evoke both Burning Man, and Atlas Shrugged. But a happy version of Atlas the power of the human mind, drive, passion holding up civilization on the ocean proudly, standing tall, not bowed under the weight.
