In the absence of taxation,

In the absence of taxation, society would be far more prosperous and property owners would have more in their pocket to go around.

Since there will always be a demand for roads, communities will come together and undoubtedly form some sort of contractual agreement.

Think of condos and gated communities.

Their roads always look nicer than the public ones because they budget properly.

This is also in a property owner's best interest because having well paved roads increases the property value.

Self interest can solve these problems, not threats and coercion.
