Opting out has nothing to do with a consensus.

That is the whole point. Opting out just breaks the monopoly. Who needs to agree to it? I just would like permission to not be part of your consensus. I surely have never met you and will most likely never meet you so why do you care if I agree to the 38 million stupid laws that you abide by? If we meet we can sign a contract with penalties included that anticipate a default from my end. Why do we need monopoly on initiation force to even exist?

You sound very tyrannical. Do you really believe that the ignorant masses need someone to make decisions for them?
