LUXURY LIVING IN ORANGE COUNTY

The unofficial guide to locating and building a custom home in the nation's greatest county.

The other interesting item buried here is a note to all the libertarian/anarchist types trying to dig up historical examples of "the stateless society" to prove to their friends that the "private property anarchism" stuff really could work. Take a look at the numerous and massive private communities all over south Orange County, California. It's a private property anarchists dream! Well, that is, if you realize all of the implicaitons of the theory (e.g., you DON'T get to travel freely, er, migrate, to the location of your choice, unless your name is on the list at the security checkpoint.) The only part of these communities remaining "public" are the ones that the developers can dump off on the public system in order to cut costs (subsidized police and fire services, municipal bond financed infrastructure, etc.).
