Yes, but just suppose I make

Yes, but just suppose I make a deal that 'x' amount of money can be taken from my wallet at the beginning of every month as payment for a house. But one month I do not have that amount.

Under the terms of the agreement they can reclaim the house and dutifully they turn up only to find me sitting on the roof with my gun. Would there be a shoot out or would they go back quietly? Would they hire armed thugs to come get me? I could very well hire my own thugs.

The way govt. enforcement works is that it is far too powerful to be opposed and hence is so effective as an arbiter of contracts. I don't know if any private entity could match the functions of govt. without becoming even more corrupt and evil than the organization it replaced.
