“Creepy Carlucci” and his salt-water castles

According to Mark Ames in “The Really Creepy People Behind the Libertarian-Inspired Billionaire Sea Castles

The super-wealthy are already building their first floating castle, a billion-dollar-plus luxury liner that offers permanent multimillion-dollar housing with the best protection of all: moats made of oceans […]
The first such floating castle has been christened the “Utopia”–the South Korean firm Samsung has been contracted to build the $1.1 billion ship, due to be launched in 2013. Already orders are coming in to buy one of the Utopia’s 200 or so mansions […] It’s the first of its kind to offer permanent housing units to buyers […] At nearly 1,000 feet, the Utopia is almost as long as a nuclear-powered Nimitz-class aircraft carrier.

The floating castle is a longtime dream of libertarian oligarchs — a place where they can live their lives in peace free from the teeming masses of starving losers and indebted parasites and their tax demands.
