Marvelous! Far exceeds my hopes for imaginative possibilities and offers opportunities for great fun.
Do give me some time to think this over, I'm not as quick as I used to be.
And a few questions for clarification.
1. As there are no geographic boundries except for the territorial national boundry, how are the state gov'ts to deliver their services? Unless protection of private property is NOT one of them.
2. Please be more specific on the Core services. These might include the national Military, weights and measures - particularly of gold and silver, possibly coining them but not exclusively. Does it include a Congress? How would such a body be constructed.
3. On the additional state of the non-core services. Are these one bundle of services or can they be split. I suppose particular services could be duplicated by other gov'ts.
4. The 'Head Tax' seems similar to the requirement of owning land was originally for voting rights. (I'm not disagreeing with that.)
5. The non-geographically contained states sound like private companies offering services on the internet. Like Mark's Daily Apple, in fact.
6. I assume that ownership of land requires care of it. What about land that no individual owns? Is it left to the Core Gov't (not good, that would perpetuate the tragedy of the commons). Is it parceled among the other states?
7. Why's - your list of principles. Very good. But why the need to pay for your entire life's services in advance. If that's a democratically elected congress you're paying to you've given them unlimited tempation for theivery. How would you hold them responsible without a private army?
