Spontaneous Order Experiments Take Hold in Detroit

The citizens fight crime on their own while the city tackles unauthorized park benches.

"As Detroit’s call-it-anything-but-bankruptcy budget crisis drags on and the city government is unable to provide the most basic of services, residents have discovered an alternative to lawless anarchy: cooperative anarchy!"

"When the system fails us, you have to become the system," said Mitch Logan, a 48-year-old film producer who is part of a self-dubbed "Mower Gang" that mows neighborhood parks after they've finished their own yards.

Good article.

When government fails to provide services, anarchy results. Volunteers will come together to provide the most efficient solutions to a problem.
