Jason Hartman talks with Patri Friedman, Executive Director of The Seasteading Institute, about creating new countries using the seasteading technique. Patri discusses how the concept would work in today's environment and why it's not absurd to think of a country being created on the water. It's coming sooner than you expect.

Key Takeaways:
