Just thinking about these libertarian islands

Will they be doing the construction work themselves? (Keep in mind these are millionaires we are talking about not survivalists with construction skills). And once the construction is over, will they maintain the property themselves? Tasks like cleaning, cooking, etc, are they planning to hire people? And if so, what kind of wages will they offer? And as importantly, what kind of social provisions? Because once they hire someone to do the tasks they deem as “too menial”, their fantasy of self sufficiency crumbles like a house of cards. And given that this will happen on international waters where labor laws do not apply, I suppose their workers wouldn’t be mere servants, no? Or is this just an excuse to legally oppress their service personnel?

So many implications in this supposed lawless “paradise”, so little capacity to even consider them all.

For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you.  Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
