Will society still need some source of ultimate authority? The answer is yes. That authority will come from three ZAP-based social norms.

The first two social norms are what the writer Richard Maybury calls The Two Laws . . .

  • Do all you have agreed to do (contracts)
  • Do not encroach on other persons or their property (the Zero Aggression Principle)

If you violate one of these laws then your guilt or innocence, and the compensation you must pay, will be determined by the third social normThe Jury.

These three norms will be the sovereign law of a ZAP-based society. If you want such a society sign-up below.
