An FTN Interview with Dr.Titus Gebel about "Free Private Cities"
Imagine a system in which a private company, as a government service provider, offers you the protection of life, liberty, and property.

This service includes internal and external security, a legal and regulatory framework and independent dispute resolution. For these services, you pay a contractually fixed fee per year. The state service provider as operator of the community can not unilaterally change this "citizens contract" with you later. As a "contract citizen", you have a legal claim to compliance and a claim for damages in the event of failures. You take care of everything else, but you can do whatever you want, limited only by the rights of others and the other moderate rules of living together. This includes working with others for all sorts of purposes. Disputes between you and the governmental service provider will be heard by independent arbitration tribunals as is customary in international commercial law. If the operator ignores the rulings or otherwise abuses his power, his customers go bankrupt. He thus has an economic risk and thus an incentive to treat his customers well in accordance with the contract.
This system is called Free Private City!
