On March 6, 2009, Chuck Grimmett delivered a presentation on the Hillsdale College campus, entitled, “An Introduction to Seasteading.” The presentation was sponsored by the Hillsdale Classical Liberal Organization and the Omicron Delta Epsilon economics honorary. The Power Point slides and Mr. Grimmett’s notes accompanying this presentation are available for free download here. Mr. Grimmett introduced the concept of seasteading – homesteading the high seas in search of greater political autonomy and experimentation with various kinds of social orders. Mr. Grimmett discussed what Seasteading is and some of the work of Patri Friedman and Wayne Gramlich at the Seasteading Institute. He also discussed the reasons for the seasteading approach in particular and how it could be expected to work. His notes and slides provide an excellent detailed introduction to this novel approach toward preserving liberty.
