Governments claim jurisdiction to 99.9% of all land on Planet Earth, yet over 70% of this planet is wide open ocean. Overpopulation, famine, depleting resources, and lack of freedom, among other things, are all issues facing the future of humanity. But seasteading provides an interesting, profitable, and innovative solution to these problems.One application of seasteading is presented by Kerry Thornley in this 1966 article series. Rather than large-scale, expensive, time-consuming projects, he proposes a permanent floating voluntary society on the open ocean. Herein, he covers: getting started as a sailor, considerations for purchasing boats, potential shipping ventures, starting marine cities, aquaculture ("marine farming), and mining opportunities for entrepreneurs.The open ocean provides great opportunities for humanity, but lets not forget those that have already laid the path. Lets set sail for sunnier waters.
