The logical step forward in the evolution of individual freedom

I think that the only logical step forward in the evolution of individual freedom is a government-less society. A state is defined as the group of people, or body Politic, that inhabits a geographic area. they must share some common unifying purpose. It's how they choose to be governed that is at issue, it seems to me. So statelessness is different and very complicated issue.

If one were to think of the evolution of government in the western world it would look something like this:

Clan Chief
King (Centralized Power)
Emperor (Centralized Power)
Oligarchy (Centralized Power)
Parliamentary representation (Distribution of Centralized Power)
Self government with limited government (distributed power of Centralized authority)
Usurpation of self government by the limited government. (Centralization of Distributed Power and Authority - No Responsibility)

The next step HAS to be the elimination of any centralized power, and the cultural codification of self governance through voluntary interaction and the non aggression principle. This will make Men and Women responsible for their actions, but does not eliminate liability, compassion, or generosity.
