Continuing the discussion from What about applying the seasteading concept to refugee problems NOW?:
Well the beauty of Seasteading is this: Currently refugees are net resource consumers (they are not allowed to work in Europe, millions are spent to make them learn local languages like German, French or whatever). But they could become net resource producers. They have skills, drive, passion. They want to move forward in life. So the e.g. European union just needs a small amount of money to build the first Seastead. Then they have to pay back that initial investment if the Seastead is doing well. Invested resources can be used again and less resources are necessary in the first place (because no new language needs to be learned). This will also cause less problems. Because there is no NEED to integrate people. We are not forcing people anymore to come to a cultural compromise. British people can go on living their lives while Syrians can keep their traditions, language etc. Finally integration might become a voluntary act. And giving refugees an alternative to their destroyed/chaotic home countries is just a matter of liquidity.
