Libertarians often are accused of promoting reflexive opposition to the state without offering concrete alternatives for securing order, peace, and prosperity in society. Yet, in truth, society already contains the foundations for freedom in the form of non-state institutions that make civilization possible. Civil society and markets — individuals, families, religious and social institutions, private business, even private legal systems — exist quite peaceably without government.

Governments compete with civil society and seek to tear down these institutions, enriching the political class while positioning the state as "indispensable". But, in fact, the opposite is true: civil society expands and flourishes in the absence of state intervention, capably performing those functions the state claims for itself.

This seminar will examine the institutions of a stateless society and explore topics such as private defense, private police, privately produced money, the role of markets, and how stateless legal systems would work.

See a stateless future through pragmatic eyes, as we look to historical examples and clear-eyed analysis of how societies would secure life, liberty, and property through private, competing organizations in all aspects of life.
