I recently read this book by Professor Gerard Casey and felt I had to share it with the Tír na Saor community. It makes a compelling and intelligent case for a new (or rather an old) form of co-existing in a stateless society. It give clear reasoned examples about the evils of statehood and makes a rational argument that we should adopt a freer, less centralised, more inclusive system of governance (if it be called 'governance' at all). He also provides several historical examples of societies where such models worked and flourished in the past, among these early Ireland (under the brehon law) is included.
You can get the book and read more about it here.
