Joe Quirk’s “visionary talk” at Voice & Exit Conference

This could be the best, most succinct talk about seasteading ever. In under twelve minutes my colleague Joe Quirk explains how seasteading is the answer to the world’s most difficult problems. You will want to watch this.

The Voice and Exit conference has been described as “an edgy TED” and “a rocket ship ride into the future” by a community who call themselves “Exiters,” people who are creating “options to leave the current ways in which society is organizing itself and invent new and better ways of doing things.”

Author Max Borders, Director of Content for The Foundation for Economic Freedom, V&E co-founder and seasteading contributor, asked Joe to sum up why floating cities are a vital and realistic goal. Max suggested Joe seize people’s attention with an arresting fact that will turn a common perspective upside down.

That he does. Joe offers a global historical view of why freedom and prosperity advance. He concludes describing our next practical step, the Floating City Project, and leaves the audience with an image that may inspire designers to submit to our Architectural Design Contest.

Joe Quirk offers us a vision for humanity that is brimful of positive possibilities that will benefit humanity! Further, in the light of the upcoming UK general election his talk highlights just how pathetic our politicians really are with their neo nineteenth century views of how to do things. They are probably the biggest problem we have to cope with, with there narrow minded attitudes coupled with their power monopoly – they are the biggest factor that holds us back.

Excellent talk Joe…a 7 billion aquatic planet can no longer ignore the oceans and do land based business as usual…
