Government-as-we-know-it is based on coercion and involuntary servitude (taxation). A canton is a voluntary association of persons at a certain territorial level (municipal, county, state/province, nation), the first step in creating a form of government that exists by consensus, and that operates, not on the basis of coercion, but of cooperation, tolerance, and real respect for persons. See the article “The Road From Serfdom” for more details.
Government by Contract is an implementation of the political concept of panarchy.
