Rahim Taghizadegan: The Politics of Seasteading

Abstract

The political implications, possibilities, and restrictions of seasteading are analyzed. Particular attention is given to the question of new political structures, collective decision-making, and democracy. Four major objectives of seasteading, that are related but have different implications, are discussed. A realistic analysis leads to a skeptical but sympathetic assessment of seasteading.
