Ghastly: The best thing about The Citadel is the way each individual neighbourhood is walled off. That'll come in so handy when the people in Suburb A attack those bastards who open their eggs on the wrong end in Suburb B.


No, the best thing is the single entry gate for both the outer and inner wall.  This will be hilarious when the local kids block it with a giant snowball every winter.

Don't the rules for the Citadel already exist in rural Idaho?

Personally, I hope that all three projects go ahead.  I would love to see how the rest of America survives after all of the bootstrappy rugged Randian libertarian wealthy people leave to stake out their own private Galt's Gulches.

I mean it, I am dead serious, I really would love to see a United States that didn't have these fine, upstanding, self-reliant people in it.

And furthermore, if the population is required to have a year's worth of food and water, a go-bag (which I think my granddad had installed after the stroke, but I'm not great with medical terms), and 1000 rounds of ammunition; who's confirming this? Will there be municipal jackbooted-thugs to audit my food and ammunition stores, or is my neighbor expected to spy upon and oppress me directly? If they authorities claim I don't have enough ammunition and I shoot one of them and bellow "THERE'S 999 MORE WHERE THAT CAME FROM, JOHNNY LAW!" is that considered admissible testimony or do I need to submit paperwork?

I really need some questions answered before I seriously consider leaving civilization to live behind a "fortification" constructed without building permits in order to get 40% of my calories from squirrel.

The Seasteaders are my all-time favorite whackadoodle libertarian fringers, and that's a very long list of contenders.

Nowhere on the surface of the earth are more invasive, iron-clad restrictions on personal liberties necessary than on a ship (or floating island). The laws of biology and buoyancy will trump your ideology before you lose sight of land. You can run a medium-security prison with more permissiveness than a boat on the open ocean.

I'd chip in some money just for the pleasure of watching them turn into history's greatest fascists.

StrangeQ: I particularly love the no minimum wage bit. Who, exactly, do they think they are going to hire to come put the little umbrellas in their drinks on their glorified floating tiki bar? Yeah, I'm sure there will be people just jumping at the chance to come serve rich people $20 drinks for $2 an hour and never even have the hope for a chance to share in the lifestyle.


If I were George Soros, I would pay a bunch of people 100K a year to volunteer for $2/hr grunt work on the libertarian island platform.  Then, once I stack the platform with enough citizens, I'd have them form a political party, vote in a minimum wage law and form a union affiliated with UFCW.  Then they could vote to be the first nation in world history to recognize the entire UN charter of human rights.

That might actually be profitable, if you compare the cost of building one of those things with the cost of acquiring it through a democratic takeover.   Our principal export would be electricity powered by exploding heads.

Never been on a cruise ship?  Third world nationals will take the jobs.

If they ever get one of these libertarian cruise ships floating, the imagery will be priceless.  A bunch of white folks ordering around brown people to serve their every whim, no minimum wage, probably paying them in company script.

Yeah, that will help the libertarian movement.


That's what I thought. Carnival has this all sewn up.

The "seasteader" movement doesn't seem to make any sense.  Escaping minimum wage and firearms restrictions by living on a large platform in international waters?

First of all, who the Hell are you going to pay minimum wage on your little platform?  To do what?  To work in the factory that doesn't fit anywhere?  Why not just move to Saipan, which already has an extensive sweatshop industry and a perfectly bribeable government?

Second, if you're away from society on floating platform, firearms serve zero purpose except for addressing the problem you just created by moving into international waters.
