What would be your strategy for maintaining public order in a neighborhood without a police presence?

 @9KY6LGG from Washington answered…2mos2MO

 @9KN9SF9 from California answered…3mos3MO

I feel that a regulated militia of citizens to fight crime in a non-police area would work. I feel that police must be a thing to maintain order.

 @9KN9VKS from Washington answered…3mos3MO

to only allow people who won't cause trouble to live there. and make sure people have proper house security

 @9KN9V45 from California answered…3mos3MO

Making sure that everyone is accounted for, no criminals, rules prehaps, etc.


Could a society function effectively if all its members were completely free to do as they pleased?

 @9H83PC2 from Texas answered…6mos6MO

No, a society couldn't function properly if everyone were free. There has to be a line of rules and laws that should be followed in order to keep the world in balance and organized. Without any rules or regulations, the world would be in chaos and people could do whatever they want without consequences.

 @9H92RJCSocialist from Delaware answered…6mos6MO

There needs to be rules across society, however in a society without a government they could still be put in place through other means.

  @92VHLQ8Constitution from Illinois answered…6mos6MO

so long as the member is not engaged in activity which directly inflicts harm to other people, the member should be left alone by the government.


If there were no government safety nets, what alternative methods could we as a community create to support those in need?

 @9HDB2ZB from Tennessee answered…6mos6MO

Creating community based institutions that support the needs of the community. Perhaps hiring community workers who actually talk to the community and find methods to fulfill those needs.

 @9HD9ZPP  from California answered…6mos6MO

As a community we could just always show more respect to peoples freedom and opinions no matter how much they differ from our own.


How would you handle a situation where your freedom of choice conflicts with the well-being of the community?

 @9HDJZTZDemocrat from North Carolina answered…6mos6MO

If Libertarians means to seek to maximize political freedom and autonomy, emphasizing freedom of choice, voluntary association, and individual judgment, then I think that I should be able to make a choice that doesn't jeopardize the safety of the community.

  @Patriot-#1776Constitution from Washington commented…5mos5MO

If you're talking about abortion, that actually violates the libertarian principle of non-aggression...

 @9HDJMTY from Indiana answered…6mos6MO

I would have to know the situation beforehand, as I can put my freedom of choice on hold.

 @9H9JHFWGreen from California commented…6mos6MO

I would choose the choice that does not start conflict with the well-being of the community.


Can true freedom exist without some form of government structure to uphold it?

 @9KY6LGG from Washington answered…2mos2MO

Yes. An absence of government structure does not mean an absence of law. We could return to privatised law, and effectively punish criminals to potentially an even greater extent than we do with government.

 @9H9DG2G from California commented…6mos6MO

I don't think freedom would be able to exist because of people not following them.


In your own life, how do you determine when it's appropriate to follow your own path versus considering the impact of your actions on others?

 @9HDCS47from Pennsylvania answered…6mos6MO


Is there a balance between personal choice and the common good, and if so, what does it look like to you?

 @9HH3FPY from California answered…6mos6MO

There is a balance between personal choice and the common good, but in order to do some common good, sometimes it might require to give up some personal choice. This would be something like obeying your parents. Obeying your parents is considered common good, but sometimes you have to give up part of your personal choice to do whatever you want in order to be good and obey your parents.

 @9HH2QJ8 from California commented…6mos6MO

What part of your daily routine would change most if there were no societal expectations?

I would spend most of the day preaching to people who are lost, since I wouldn't need to show up to school.


How would you propose we handle education if there were no state-run schools?

 @9HVJPZ8 from Pennsylvania answered…5mos5MO


Can you share a personal experience where more freedom of choice could have led to a better outcome?

 @9HRSBRZfrom Maine answered…5mos5MO

if the united states didnt interfere in socialist/democratically formed countries in the global south, these countries would prosper better economically, examples being viewed vietnam, cuba, chile, etc

 @9HRSG3J from Kentucky answered…5mos5MO

Freedom of choice in abortion decisions where the mothers life is in danger, in cases of rape, and in cases of fetuses with health issues.


In a community with no police force, how would you envision maintaining safety and order?

 @9JNSDJW from North Carolina answered…4mos4MO

I would envision maintaining safety and order by people and keeping a safe, calm environment.

 @9JNSHC4 from North Carolina answered…4mos4MO

I would vision people would hopefully still own self defense weapons. But i would also hope these communities would be more selective and generally less violent than other areas that need police

I think it would work, but people being people would push what they could to the limits.

I think products could become a lot more dangerous to the public without regulation.
