True that freeloaders don’t represent the future of seasteading.
The problem of how to handle the Free Riders has existed in economics since the first lazy person was born.
The only answer - ever - has been some form of punishment.
Follow 4 guys who start going to the bars together … with one of them never buying a round of drinks.
It doesn’t take long for the other 3 to start punishing the Free Rider. First they criticize … and ultimately they just don’t invite the Free Rider.
When US cities or counties ban panhandling (or “sales”) from the left-turn median at traffic intersections …
… the migrant Free Riders migrate to a more hospitable environment (e.g., San Diego city) and become entrenched.
Those places exist ONLY because certain politicians and politically-sympathetic judges mandate that society provide for the Free Riders.
Free Riders flourish ONLY when government mandates that the free-market economy subsidizes unproductive people.
Remove that imposed mandate and the free-market economy IMMEDIATELY starts to punish Free Riders.
That’s the nature of Homo Sapiens.
Even ‘The Little Red Hen’ figured that out.
