    I live in the UK, and our corrupt, incompetent and criminally negligent government wasted £37bn through cronyism for a test and trace system that didn't even work. $10bn for a massive ship therefore seems like good value for money in comparison.

    Terrible idea? Why? This sounds absolutely brilliant. If they're self-sustaining via the fees on-board and can re-stock on critical equipment and consumables while briefly anchored, then this ship is offering an effective solution to a modern problem, big boat logistics aside. The idea of taxes is that people pay for the ongoing support of the country, but that that they owe taxes as some sort of "payback" to the countries they grew up in in exchange for the country's protection. So I see no reason in leaving to a place that offers them a more efficient solution, considering those people aren't the assets of the country nor owe them (as they already paid past taxes for the past benefits of the country they consumed).

Forget this future Carnival poop cruiser. Everybody should look up Jacque Fresco's futuristic designs for entire cities and research centers on the water, along with architecture of several designs for culture centers, single houses, to living complexes. Now THAT is what I think we should all be working towards for the well-being of everyone and the planet. Good health to you all.

    This really just seems like a way to scam rich people. The cost to live on this ship would have to be astronomical, but I'm sure every billionaire would be lining up live there. I can't imagine how paying that much would make up for not having to pay taxes, but I'm sure their hatred of paying their due makes up for the lack of practicality.

    $10 billions is surprisingly cheap. Aircraft carrier USS Gerald Ford cost around $12 billion (not including operational cost). Freedom ship is estimated to be 7 times longer and 5 times wider. Even if final cost end up 2-3 more than original price tag it is still cheap for its size. Just show how much money human waste on military. I rather money spend on this or space exploration.

    The public ("we") already pay more than our fair share of taxes to bail out all the banks and major industries who refuse to allow themselves to die, even when society and time have shown that they are now obsolete. In a world controlled by money and money interests, don't ever be surprised that those with the wealth will do everything in their power to keep control and rig the rules of the game in their favor, even if it means dooming the planet and civilization (all for the sake of their egos, sigh).

    Yes, but comparing the cost to that of a government funded project is apples to oranges. Presumably this project wouldn't have to go through the same insane rules government projects do and it would avoid a lot of the corruption found in government contracting. So, yea the cost might be twice as much as the Freedom Tower, but the result would be 8x better. Kind of the whole point of building the boat to begin with lol But yes, the rest of it is insane. In a "fun to think about but not realistic" sort of way.

    I don't understand: you want to keep these evil rich people locked in their respective countries?

This is just one idea, and it's not just rich people who think this is a good idea.
