"Two thirds of our globe is Planet Ocean, not Planet Earth. Imagine a vast new source of sustainable and renewable energy that would also bring more equitable economies. A previously untapped source of farming that could produce significant new sources of nutrition. Future societies where people could choose the communities they want to live in, free from the restrictions of conventional citizenship. This bold vision of our near future as imagined in Seasteading attracted the powerful support of Silicon Valley's Peter Thiel."--Jacket flap.
"What if ... the way to decrease ocean pollution is to increase ocean populations? ... the way to decrease the number of wars is to increase the number of countries? ... the way to discover political solutions is to empower your political enemies? ... we don't need to fight when we can float? ... it's easier to float than fly? ... we built civilization in the wrong place? ... you could create your own microcountry at sea?"--Page [ix].
