So called Pirate radio stations come to mind, Ha! Seriously though, I read this morning that apparently the couple don't own the floating structure but the owner/sponsor isn't mentioned. Also apparently, the Thai police have allegedly been 'harassing' the Thai wife's mother and son who live on the mainland.

Without all these „libertarian” statements about governments, he might have pulled that of ... 

 

However, from the point of view of a former yachty: just imagine, there are more and more of these “obstructions” far out at sea -unlit and uncharted- and at night, you crash with your sailing boat into it. A lot of people would immediately ask, why the Thai authorities did not prevent that loss of lifes ...

 

I also do not welcome the terrible idea that -if this idea becomes popular for people with enough money- the beautiful Andaman Sea is getting cluttered with more and more of these ugly constructions.

 

Anyway, just another guy, who thinks, he stands above the laws.

There are so many illegal properties built on and around Phuket it is not funny and the only time a designated Parks Minister wanted to highlight this..he was promptly sacked some 4 years ago having been in the job weeks!

But they weren’t built more than 12nm outside the coast, setting up a fund raiser in Bitcoin for more of them and postulating some libertarian b.s. about governments and laws.

Seems to be a bit of a contradiction on exactly what they were doing there 

according to a Company called Ocean builders who seemingly own the site

the people on there were living rent free 

but some articles claim he was involved in investing his Bitcoin ?

If only Prayuth had his fleet of submarines. They could have blown this insideous threat to the country's sovereignty out of the water before it even got started. You can't treat these kind of things lightly, or before you know it, every Tom, Dick, and Somchai will start building there own territories in the middle of the ocean somewhere. 

Why not build your own territory in middle of the ocean the chinese have done it turning deserlete islands that dont belong to them into their own territory and military home in the south china sea , the islands are owned by vietnam also philippines say they are theirs among several countries

He never had the intention of "declaring it an independent state".

Yeah, but this guy is dumb, taking on the 'state' whether he is right or wrong is just plain stupid. Should have just said sorry and moved on.

everyone seems to be forgetting he would have to enter as a tourist everytime he comes to shore, it is outside international borders so he is no longer in Thailand when staying on it, visa or not. Whether or not any of what is happening in regard to the building is legal doesnt matter if he is still coming into Thailands waters or ports he needs a visa to do so, if he doesnt have one/get one then he is entering illegally. The building is a whole other question, when you read the articles on it the builders are saying it is to alienate the thai govt so they cannot supposedly do anything to you a\nd calling the pm a dictator, seems they are getting very political with it which is probably what is pi** them off but it still comes back to the legality of him entering Thailand everytime he wants to, he cant have it both ways, if he has no visa and been black banned he cannot enter  at all, and if he did have a visa he would need multiple re entries as well, the immigration bit is a big problem for them, hiding out in Thailand is just a bad idea as it will put him in jail when caught

It seems that people will rush to the defense of every loonie and crackpot who comes up against Thai law.  Try building a structure 12 miles off the coast of your own country, yet alone a foreign one, declare it an independent state, and see what happens.  

Several people have tried this off the UK coast and run into similar arguments against their legality. I am curious to know why no action was taken until the structure was complete - unless they had a genie construct it overnight it must  have taken several months to build.

 

UK example here...

Nerd with a bit of money......

Should have called it a fishing platform...now the Thai dream is over.

 

I always thought cruising the 7 seas on your own boat is the real freedom, not having a shitty platform.
