In theory...

...isn't our current government supposed to already be a voluntary government: by the 'consent of the governed'? I say in theory because obviously the banksters, etc. running the show now couldn't care less about that ideal.

Once you voluntarily grant power to your entrepreneur of choice to provide those services, how are they not becoming the 'men with guns' at that point? How are you sure these various 'gangs' will give back power or let you voluntarily leave or not come after you if they have a beef against you? Are not political parties, in a sense, these entrepreneurs for providing 'voluntary' government services already?

I'm having a hard time seeing how these voluntary, competing services do not still devolve into what we have today. Feel free to enlighten me, as I honestly haven't spent much time pondering all the facets of anarchy/voluntarism yet. :)
