This talk about building libertarian countries at sea has me wondering about law enforcement. They might not need armies, but they’ll likely need police.

Years back, a friend of mine suggested we see the movie, Barquero, which was not one of the best movies I’ve seen. Basically, things go to hell in a handbasket when the

barge operator, Travis, refuses to be bullied into providing transport for the gang

So, instead of a sheriff, they could have bargemen wearing badges. If only these guys would hire me as a water treatment consultant. But I fear I’ve gone too far overboard for that!
