There has been quite a lot written about dispute resolution in a stateless society by the likes of Murray Rothbard, Robert Murphy and others. A lot of it is quite sensible. But it’s just words on paper until we put it into action. The idea of defense agencies was just words on paper left to be explored at a later date until I started Shield Mutual. Likewise, we need to start eating our own dogfood, as software developers say, on the topic of dispute resolution in the libertarian community.
