Secure universal human rights through the demonopolization of governments.
Governments are monopolies. They don't allow much competition if any. When they do, their excessive amount of power tends to crowd out the competition. See for example how social security crowded out traditional mutual aid societies in the US. Given that monopolies are generally disliked (for good reason) and tend to provide poor service (because they don't have as much to lose), why do we tolerate monopoly in the sphere of justice and police? If government agencies had to compete in an open market, maybe people would get better service for their dollars and pesos, don't you think?
