The closest thing I can think of that worked for just about ever, is the hawala system of banking, but even that is backed by a political system disguised as a Religion.
Well you would need to first get an understanding of just what I am talking about, and then we can see how close particular events in reality have been.The closest thing today is commercial international law.
OK, lets cut to the chase, not all countries have a vested interest in getting along, they want to dominate other regions, that's human nature.Communists have no interest in Capitalism, except when it furthers their cause of total domination over those they conquered and currently rule or are pursuing.Which brings us full circle, you claim we simply need to quit participating and our system would collapse and from it's ashes would magically appear a Capitalist system of trade, no govt and freedom for all.
Again, let me reiterate, human nature has yet to be placed in context, you ignore the fact that half the country likes socialism, these people have no interest in seeing Capitalism prevail.
So tell me again, how will this fantasy world of yours succeed?
This is the reason I live in a factual world, not a theoretical one, theory is fine for the dreamer, but even the best laid plans can never account for human stupidity.
Let me be blunt, your dream is beyond fiction and to think it even has a chance of replacing our current form of Govt is nothing short of the dreams of a naive kid.Get off your cloud and join the rest of us in fighting the monster at hand, once slain, we can talk about your ideas...
Yes.That is the magic of the spontaneous order.It is also the product of self interest.Remember, Adam Smith and the invisible hand? That explanation covers more than just markets. It explains society, law, money and language, no less.Human nature is always front and center in these debates.Without praxeology we are lost in trying to understand human action.Half the country can like whatever it wants. But when you have to produce to eat, you become a capitalist.Just like it did in the past.Rewind to beginning of society and you will see my argument. There is no factual world apart from the theoretical.You can't separate them that clearly.Well, you can, but you would be wrong to do so.Let me be blunt.I believe you. I believe you see my arguments in that light.I also believe you don't really have a clue about what we are talking about.
I absolutely do, it's the same argument socialists make, both have an ideal vision of society that simply isn't sustainable.Lets take war for example, lets assume the private sector is in charge of security, but as with human nature, you have those that have grown tired of corruption and want to overthrow your society.Without laws with teeth, how are they punished? Remember, you said there is no Govt only commercial agreements.But lets take a closer look at security, is it one corporation in charge, or is it all business in charge of security?This means you'll need a full time Military, one with rules and regs of engagement, pay scale, command structure.Damn, sounds like Govt, but lets continue, what happens when a rather large corporation decides it wants it's own security force, and builds a bigger stronger force than that of society?There won't be a thing you can do about it, because you didn't have laws with teeth.Now there is a shift in power, contracts are in peril of being nullified, the new corporate power is in control.But of course, that would never happen in a total Democracy, right?
Like I said. You have literally no clue at all about what I am talking about.
Though, I am not going to spend too much time describing this because it has been done to death.Your knowledge can only grow from here by doing some independent study.
Before we can discuss anarchy and the state, we have to understand human nature. And I can tell from our discussions that human nature is something many assume they understand, because they are human. But when we actually start discussing the issue, it is clear that the subject is one not widely understood.
The fact is, centralized political authority is incompatible with human nature.

Think back to the Salem witch trials in the 1600's. Religious types were the authority back then and innocent people were burned at the stake because of customary law, even though the victims were at the mercy of the collective opinions of folks that conjured up gossip and lies-heck, even imaginary devils that these victims were in league with just because they may have actually enjoyed the feminine past-time of dancing in the moonlight with other girls, just at play.
