Silicon Valley billionaire funding creation of artificial libertarian islands
this is awesome!

Pay Pal founder and early Facebook investor Peter Thiel has given $1.25 million to an initiative to create floating libertarian countries in international waters, according to a profile of the billionaire in Details magazine.\

...

Details says the experiment would be "a kind of floating petri dish for implementing policies that libertarians, stymied by indifference at the voting booths, have been unable to advance: no welfare, looser building codes, no minimum wage, and few restrictions on weapons."

No minimum wage? So what, libertarians want to have a labor force full of workers who work for pennies a day?

Only rich people will be able to live there, anyway. And their servants.

I see about a million ways this can go horribly wrong, and only two or three ways this can succeed.

Ah, so instead of evading taxes using the Cayman Islands, US Corporations can start building their own islands.
