The Boat That Rocked (or in North America, Pirate Radio) was a 2009 British rock comedy, based on a true story, reminds me of FTL without the boat.
Mark reminds me of Bill Nighy's character, while Ian and Darryl remind me Philip Seymour Hoffman and Rhys Ifans' characters. Radio pirates confronting the government over the airwaves.
The true story is pretty interesting. But the reason for the post is to encourage Mark's cruise-line idea. A libertarian/voluntaryist cruise-line operating and living without anyone's unneeded permission? Sounds like the Seasteading Institute is missing a great mind.
Two of my favorite quotes from the movie sums up FTL to me: "Governments loathe people being free" and "I don't give a hootenanny...about your nitpicking limey laws. I intend to broadcast from this ship 24 hours a day until the day I die. And then for a couple days after that."
If this ever becomes a reality, I hope this is uttered out of someone looking out into the ocean without a government in sight, "we should've set sail years ago."
