Source Summary: Author Max Borders, Director of Content for The Foundation for Economic Freedom, V&E co-founder and seasteading contributor, asked Joe to sum up why floating cities are a vital and realistic goal. Max suggested Joe seize people’s attention with an arresting fact that will turn a common perspective upside down. That he does. Joe offers a global historical view of why freedom and prosperity advance. He concludes describing our next practical step, the Floating City Project, and leaves the audience with an image that may inspire designers to submit to our Architectural Design Contest.
