I think that could be a fair judgment. People can derive a lot of contentment out of simple things. Some people can, anyway--I think that's the issue.

This would be a society well-suited to a small minority of individuals from our current society. Most people would be completely out of place, and should never be expected to fit in. That element of choice--the statement of "you don't have to stay here just because you were born here"--can keep such a society healthy. Of course, that same principle isn't really followed on the international scale. :smile:

So you don't believe in the necessity of some form of universal negative liberty written into a "constitution" or something for this society?

I would still argue that even like minded individuals coming together to "form" a society based on direct democracy could and would still easily result in disagreements of the most severe sort. As an exmaple I would offer the Puritan colonies in Massachusetts. The Puritans came together because they were of "like mind" and most of their votes were (as predicted) near-unanimous. But that didn't keep them from exhiling or even killing their own members - even among first-generation immigrants who had joined that society of their own volition, and not through random birth.

Without guaranteed rights and freedoms that are laid out in advance, I just don't see how to guarantee that a similar fate would hit this society.

Democratically-constructed constitutions are formed to keep the existing mindset solid, and to help pass it along to the next generation and to keep it from changing. They're not invented out of nowhere--they're the product of the zeitgeist.

They did not respect the rights of others, were oppressive and certainly not anarchist, they attempted to interfer with other lives, even what they read(spell books). People were not free to worship what the wanted, very oppressive...
