Pioneers on the Ocean Sea

Ocean homesteading is appealing to those who wish for  a different political system. But how long would it take for such a new government to fall into old patterns of behavior?

The Seasteading Institute wants to find out.  In this video and on their web site this organization promises a brave new world of politics and social organization in giant floating cities, located in formerly international waters.

The videos and graphics show mega-yachts tied up to these cities of the future.  But where are the little sailboats? How would such a country handle refugees and asylum seekers? Utopia has never been so easy … or so elite.
