"So: imagine that you had the freedom to create any regulatory environment that the nations of the world would tolerate. You can’t reverse-engineer the top selling pharmaceuticals, manufacture them w/o a patent, and sell them by mail to the United States. You can’t develop world-smashing weapons for super-villains. You can’t create the ultimate anonymous cash system along with an assassination market. In other words, you can’t let your country’s local freedoms directly threaten the sovereignty of existing nations. But you can do all the medical tourism, non-anonymous currencies, local IP-free industries, and R&D you want." (10/11/11)
