Inspired by America’s “homesteading” movement of the 19th century, the Seasteading Institute of California envisions futuristic floating cities that will not only restore environment but also empower humanity on social, economic and political fronts.

Joe Quirk, who has authored a book on “Seasteading,” explains that modular and detachable patches of floating cities would allow inhabitants to “vote with their house” by parting away if they don’t get along with the government, writes The Week.

Quick says he believes such independent communities could be thriving beds for socio-political experiments and could promote business innovations although the feasibility of such a concept remains a subject of skepticism for many, notes Yale Climate Connections.
