Patri Friedman on competing with government

Government is an industry with a really high barrier to entry. You basically need to win an election or a revolution to try a new one. That's a ridiculous barrier to entry. And it's got enormous customer lock-in. People complain about their cellphone plans that are like two years, but think of the effort that it takes to change your citizenship.

~Patri Friedman, "seasteading" entrepreneur and innovator, Wired.com, May 19, 2008
