    If a government can come up with the answer, it was a pretty inconsequential question.

    I won’t be wronged. I won’t be insulted. I won’t be laid a-hand on. I don’t do these things to other people, and I require the same from them.

    Still, something tells me that a federal “task force devoted to federal ocean planning” that’s “designed to protect ocean ecology, address climate change and promote sustainable ocean economies” wouldn’t mix well with deep sea living platforms with anti-authoritarian tendencies. While the govt is currently limited in its coastline, upon developing this technology (which it has the resources and manpower to do, and we don’t) there will be very little stopping them or some international body (the UN) from expanding to the middle of the Pacific. I’m just sayin’…

    If (Government meddling == True)
    Then (Seasteading = Moonsteading)

    Seems inevitable anyway. Hopefully for the time being any interference with seasteading will be limited to their EEZs. If (and when) it isn’t, the political battle between seasteading and the world’s governments will begin. I really doubt that any existing societies are going to want new competition springing up all over the world, just look at the constant ideological battles between capitalism and communism. I doubt capitalist governments will be happy about seasteaders founding an experimental communist seastead. Hopefully TSI will have the money and resources to act as a political advocate for seasteaders. I figured that would eventually end up being a major effort of TSI, since artificial islands w/ new societies in the middle of the ocean will probably only lead to nations claiming the oceans or extending their EEZs.

    Aside from interference with seasteading, the oceans really do need some management. Look at the pollution, whaling, resource depletion, etc.

    is a call to arms! We’d better got on the stick, get ahead of the curve or we could be regulated out of existence before we even exist…
