The Seasteaders Respond To Slate

October 19, 2010

From the blog:

The idea that these communities will be “law-free” gets our goals exactly backwards. Any community larger than a single hermit needs rules to govern the interaction of it’s residents, and seasteads are no different. We are so pro-law, in fact, that our core mission is to increase the diversity and quality of legal systems! What we are against is the idea that today’s laws represent the ultimate pinnacle of political perfection and the global political monoculture where new institutions are rarely tried. We instead favor experimentation with a diversity of societies to find better ways of living together.

    You should post this response on the Slate’s comments section.

    Describing Jacob Weisberg as a “Gossip Girl” is brilliant.
