Is The State needed to provide governmental services?

The State’s cultural dominance has left us largely blind to institutions of NON-STATE Governance and order. These institutions are completely voluntary. They don’t initiate force or use criminal means. They serve rather than rule. These forms include . . .

  • Self-governance
  • The family
  • Churches
  • Contractual covenants
  • Professional societies that set standards
  • Testing agencies like Underwriter’s Laboratory that provide industry regulation
  • Security firms
  • Arbitrators
  • Review systems such as AAA, Yelp, Angie’s List, the Better Business Bureau, and on and on and on.

Society is rich in non-state institutions of governance and order. And if we expand the idea of order to include social services or charities, then institutions of non-state governance becomes truly vast. These kinds of institutions — legitimate governments — will be the foundation of a ZAP-based society.
