Individual Security in a Stateless Society

  • Michael Huemer


In any realistic human society even an anarchist one, at least some individuals will commit aggression against others. The inhabitants of the anarchic society would most likely wish to develop systematic institutions for the provision of security including a collection of protection agencies or security companies whose function would be to protect individuals from aggression against their persons and property and to apprehend aggressors after the fact.1 These agencies, in brief, would serve the function that police serve in governmental systems.
