My sister returned from a Caribbean trip recently. While there, she visited Mustique Island. It’s privately owned. It has, according to her, a several dozen (not sure how many) very high net worth (VHNW) individuals with homes on the island. The other residents, as she understood, primarily work for these individuals.
Annually, the VHNW residents meet to determine the rules for the island. The island has a grand total of 2 police officers - who don’t have much to do. Many/most of the villas aren’t locked.
My sister and I chatted about this for a few minutes. I remarked that here is an instance of many libertarian principles being applied and what happens when you get government out of the way and allow for free association. The people on this island are there because the owners want them there. People they don’t want on the island, aren’t there.
I guess it’s a version of Galt’s Gulch.
I propose that a group of people, VHNW or not, given the freedom to associate as they see fit, could create similar societies. Peaceful places without a need for the state.
