On this episode of The Vonu Podcast, Shane is joined once again by Jason Boothe to examine more suggestions from previous freedom-seekers, taken from the recently published libertarian publication, Ocean Freedom Notes.
Specifically, the proposal of free communities on icebergs and in Antarctica, as well as potentially mining icebergs for profit…seriously. Article discussed include:
- Free Community on Ice (May 1984)
- Antarctica Peninsula (July 1988)
- Ice Island: A Mobile Research, Political Outpost for Canada (NY Times, Aug. 21, 1988)
- Ice Island by Jim Stumm (Dec. 1989)
- Antarctic Ice Mining (May 1990)
Jason & Shane attempt to answer these questions: Is it economically feasible? Environmentally feasible? Is it even worth it? Does it truly make you more invulnerable to coercion? And much, much more.
