Writes Spontaneous Order:

The whole reason why we form a society in the first place is to take advantage of the division of labor. We take advantage of this through exchange. Anything that coercively hinders the voluntary exchange between individuals of society is therefore anti-society. Contrary to popular belief, government, by it’s very nature, is not only not required for society to function it is itself anti-society and attacks the very core of why we come together and form communities.
