Oh, don't forget you will need to have a military (to defend from pirates and other countries)...
I think they plan to rely on Rothbard's idea, which was, if you don't have a military, no one will want to attack you. Cheesy

There is no military.   Each resident assumes they are Militia when their home module is connected to the main platform.  Militia will be encouraged to be heavily armed with full-auto carbines.

If they are not organized and trained, they will be useless when pirates attack, just as likely to shoot each other as a pirate.

A 30 foot boat with 10 pirates is going to attack a floating city with 1800 residents, 1200 of which are armed, of those, 1000 are willing to engage, of that 1000 willing to engage, 600 of which are twice as proficient in the use of firearms as the raiders.

Hmmmm. . .

My money is on the seasteaders.

Seasteaders will want to go into port once in a while to blow off steam. . . barhop, play the casinos, bang hookers,  whatnot.

I've never been to Liberia, but I've heard of the Ebola problem.

They still have it, you know.

So how did the apartment complex become a city?  haha.

But Seriously, You said just a bunch of linked barges and no HOA so why don't you just float your own barge out there and call it home?

They might not let you connect.  There is a rigorous vetting process for all new seateaders.

Can you imaging the mayhem if socialists were to allowed hook up their barges?  They would soon demand public schools, property taxes,  etc. . .

Gives me goosebumps just thinking about it.

And if the pirates have a larger boat, or several larger boats, equipped with quad .50cal Browning machine guns and a few 20mm cannons? Perhaps some RPGs?

They're all rich, they can take a helicopter ride to a private airport and jet off to the South of France.
