Our guest Trey Goff drafted a remarkable "Voluntaryist Constitution" designed to serve as the foundational legal document for a private society. Trey attempts nothing less than to define the characteristics and rules underlying a common law society, in the form of a polycentric constitutional order as envisioned by Murray Rothbard and legal scholar Randy Barnett. His goal was to create a blueprint for libertarians organizing startup or breakaway societies, one that deals with private property, rights, contracts, justice, and coercion in a rational and humane manner. The result is an inspiring and controversial document, as discussed in this great interview.
