"Free state" = oxymoron

As soon as you have someone above you who can control your life, liberty and property -- as soon as you have a "State" -- your "freedom" is toast. Such liberties as you enjoy will depend on the tolerance and good will of your master.

I won't disparage the idea of freedom-loving folks getting together to form their own community. That's a fine thing, AND a very possible solution to many problems we face . . . but imposing a formal government on the community subverts the freedom of its members.
