Building voluntary social networks

To change things good people need to build strong voluntary social networks to make the existing coercive hierarchies obsolete. Fighting existing systems is good but so is creating new networks. Or maybe it is better.

Other people came to this conclussion before. Rand's fictional Galt's Gulch, Konkin's Agorism, libertarian enthusiasm for peaceful parenting and techniques like Nonviolent Communication and coaching are all about building non-coercive social networks. I think they are right. This is where the freedom begins.

And there is no other way of creating new voluntary networks and institutions than improving personal relationships first. Here are some examples of what I mean.

I worked on this chart for an hour so hopefully you like it. Hard to believe that there was a time when I treated anything remotely resembling management workshop materials as complete nonsense.
