At a time when the Amazon rainforest is burning out of control, political polarization in the U.S. feels irreparable, technological development seems to be increasing exponentially, and climate change looms as an existential threat to our species, it’s hard not to speculate about humanity soon undergoing some massive changes. Maybe it’s a zombie apocalypse, maybe techno-utopia. Who’s to say?
Patri Friedman has an idea. He’s been working on a radical vision of the future of human civilization the better part of two decades. The self-described anarcho-capitalist, who lives in the mountains above Los Gatos, believes some of us may soon find ourselves living on permanent offshore island-nations — perhaps ones financed by big tech’s FAANG companies.
“I definitely see that at some point we’ll get corporate states, and I know some people find that creepy,” Friedman says. “I’m kind of on the fence about whether I’d like living in Apple-topia or Google-topia — definitely not Facebook-topia or Netflix-topia.”
As Friedman sees it, “sovereignty is fragmenting in the 21st century.” Countries around the world — either weary or intrepid — are beginning to think about ways to create new jurisdictions for the express purpose of tinkering with rules and regulations. Sometimes as a way to dodge rising sea levels, other times as a means of sparking economic opportunities.
