We had a long discussion under the topic "the ugly4" where the limits of the things you can do on a seastead are. The Hypothesis that it is mandatory to keep things "ethical correct" - even if you are outside the regulatory sistem - was presented there.
The other topic dealing with medical seasteads is Randy Henckens intent to get approval from FDA.
In any case NOBODY EVER suggested to do "ethical not correct things" on a seastead on any thread i am aware of in the last 5 years. If seasteaders refer to "outside jurisdiction" they are always talking about skipping scantling and hindering, unnecessary, and damaging rulesets that have nothing to do with ethic correct behavior.
Seasteads are going to have the same ethical behavior standards as land communities and improve on those - they are supposed to be a step forward - not a step back.
The hypothesis that seasteads could foster a "unethical" or "illegal" activity is merely a hypothesis of the people who write badmouthing articles about our movement.
As a movement we should react very clear and sharp when people "imply in their comments" that "seasteading has a goal that is unethical or illegal (in the sense of criminal)"....
When is comes to figure out what is ethical correct the current sistem of "burocratic overload" is not a sistem that is prone to produce good results. In Vienna Austria we had the way to create ethic commissions instead looking for "rulings" -
The ethic commission would consist of 8 top medics of the country (Univ Prof.). The doctor proposing a new treatment would "present his case" to them and recieve their ruling if his "experiment is a go or a no go" in the sense of the "hippocratic oath" and the "good standing of the medical profession".
This worked out perfectly. Burocracy is not a guaranee for correctness - court like ruling by experts on a case to case base is doing a far better job.
In this context it is necessary to say that in Austria the philosophy of regulation is rather to expect doctors to be regulated in their behavior by other doctors than doctors to be regulated by lawyers as it is the philosophy in the US sistem. - @siwel123 - I am off topic yet ? - to deepen in this follow the links below...
