From time to time someone asks me what I think a genuinely free society would look like. How would it be organized, and who, exactly, would build the roads? I know Iím not alone. My answer is always: I donít know, and neither does anyone else.
In a sense, Iím a libertarian precisely because I understand why itís impossible to answer that question any other way. I cannot accurately foretell what specific institutions, mores, and governance structureólet alone art and architectureóa free society would have. Will it be dominated by traditional nuclear families or same-sex marriages? Will its cities be monuments to mammon, or green and sustainable, or plain and ascetic? Will communities be small and gated or open and diverse?
