Colbert Lampoons Seasteading

November 9, 2011

Unfortunately he has no imagination, but that myopic stupidity speaks to how unaware the mainstream world is to stagnation in governance, or quite simply, to creating new frontiers. I don’t know how many times we have to shout that this isn’t about libertarian paradise as it is about community and variety. Most feckless of all is his line about immigrant aqua-dolphins. The repugnance of his own shabby views on immigration are reflected in his misunderstanding.

    Dude, lighten up. If you can’t handle satire then you’re taking yourself too seriously.

    I was psyched to see Colbert talking about seasteading. His viewers know it’s satire and now they’ve been exposed to the movement. Just a few short years ago *very* few people had even heard of the term seasteading. Now it’s being satirized. Seems like a good thing to me.
