Voice and Exit: Why Floating Cities are the Next Frontier

"And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; or else the new wine bursts the wineskins, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But new wine must be put into new wineskins."
Mark 2:22

Joe Quirk from Voice and Exit 2014:

  • The difference between us and a billionaire is miniscule compared to the difference with the bottom billion.
  • Governments are the only technology that does not make progress rapidly and peacefully.
  • The United States was a "breakaway experiment in governance."
  • Cruise ships are an early example of floating cities.
  • Nearly half the world's surface is unclaimed by governments.
  • Governments could only form if you choose to subject yourself to them.
  • The ocean is the largest solar panel in the world.
  • Water will be the next oil.
  • Regulations written in 1970 are holding back innovations in 2020.
  • "We walked on the moon 45 years ago; it's easier to float than fly."
