Back in the early nineties, there were several things a budding radical transhumanist might do to distinguish themselves. To keep abreast of the latest libertarian ideals, and the freethinking technologies that would be required to realize them, subscriptions to cutting edge publications like the Extropy: Journal of Tranhumanist Thought, and the Alcor Foundation’s Cryonics magazine would be essential. But what really separated the early doers from the wannabe futurists and dreamers was throwing some tangible support into ‘Operation Atlantis’ — the Floating City of Oceania — by purchasing and actually wearing their promotional T-shirt.

Oceania promised much more than just a neat place to live; it offered an entirely new way to live, and a new way to think. Unfortunately, like many other would-be Waterworlds proposed both prior and since, it just wasn’t to be. In hindsight, we now know that the primary reason for the failure of the Oceania concept was its shape. Specifically, its design was not modeled after that sleek and mysterious denizen of the deep — the manta.

Fortunately, French architect Jacques Rougerie has been able to spec out a massive floating city capable of housing some 7000 “ocean scientists,” and yet still hold the strict tolerances of the manta form factor. That, he says, provides the “best possible correlation between space and stability needs.” Practically speaking, that translates into the ability to resist turbulence and severe weather. Rougerie’s City of Mériens would be 900 meters long and 500 wide, while extending to 120 below the surface, and rising to 60 above.

The mantamorphic shape contains within itself another surprise, a large interior lagoon which provides shelter for yet another key Rougerian innovation — the SeaOrbiter. This nimble creation is more than just a properly dimensioned CAD file with a complete Bill of Materials (and we are giving the City of Mériens the benefit of the doubt on that here). In fact the SeaOrbiter is already a work in progress. Construction on the $50 million craft is apparently moving right along, with the first operational prototype expected to be operational next year.

And when the community infringes upon your rights, you leave.

Neither does America. "Muh mass shootings" is a falsity created by the government to enforce compliance with their disarmament and gun centralization schemes.

>its u

In Europe the police show up at your house because you retweeted a limerick about transgender people. The AfD is singled out by the modern day Stasi because they dare to think wrong. You have no freedom of speech, press, or armament.

You're like sheep. Nice and taken care of, but the moment you dare to think different the shepherd takes you away to be slaughtered.

The EU is not a country even though it wants to be. Switzerland for example has a lot of guns, I think it's #1 in Europe per capita.

Actually it does, way more often than monthly. Mass shootings means shooting many people, not just school shootings, and that happens all the time. Fortunately most of it's a nigger/spic gang shooting other nigger/spic gang

>Mass shootings means shooting many people

Nope. Funny enough, "mass shootings" can consist of as few a 3 people with 2 of them getting hit by something as insignificant as a BB gun, according to legal definition. "school shootings" also don't need to take place at a school, so long as they're within a frankly unreasonable distance to a school zone. When you take that, AND the gang bullshit into account, the number of actual shootings that are worth more than a few sheets of paperwork and some bandages are pathetically tiny and far and few between.

Haven't had that since Obama.

>politicians are elected

What about the bureaucrats that actually write the laws? Have you ever seen how the EU works? Bureaucrats write laws, the politicians are informed of them five minutes in advance, and then they're told to vote. It's as if Pelosi's "you have to pass the law to read it" idea was actually made into policy. And that's for the issues the MEPs are actually allowed to vote on. The MEPs are figureheads; it's the unelected bureaucrats that have all the power.

>but it doesn't

The EU bans guns, forces countries to take in millions of migrants against the will of the electorate, and pressures national governments to arrest people for wrongthink. It's not for no reason that it's called the EUSSR.

>rights are not innate

Maybe in yurop they're not. But in America, we don't have to beg for our rights from the government. Rights are innate and inalienable – to suggest that the government "gives" you your rights is to suggest that the government has the legitimate right to take them away.

>u still have no health care

In addition to the freedom to not have shitty government "healthcare", I also have freedom of speech, the right to own a gun, and freedom of association. Europeans have none of those.

>no it's not

Because the government says it's a mass shooting whenever three people are wounded. So if nigger Jayqwan shoots nigger Tyrone and nigger Mubuta, then gets shot by the police, that's a "mass shooting." Meanwhile, white America has a homicide rate equivalent to Belgium.
