Why is this neoliberal domination system so stable? Why there is little resistance to it? Despite an ever increasing gap between rich and poor? For an explanation, it is important to understand how the subjugating power works today. As it to a debate between Antonio Negri and came to me a year ago in the Berlin Schaubühne, clashed two capitalism reviews frontally. Negri raved about possibilities of global resistance against the "Empire", the neo-liberal system of government. He presented himself as a communist revolutionary and called myself a skeptical professor. Emphatically he invoked the "multitude" that linked protest and revolution mass which he trusted there appears to bring the Empire to fall. It seemed to me the position of the communist revolutionary to be naive and unrealistic. So I tried to explain Negri why no revolution is possible today.

Why is this neoliberal domination system so stable? Why is there so little resistance to it? Why are they all out as quickly into the void? Why today is not a revolution possible in spite of ever increasing gap between rich and poor? For an explanation of a thorough understanding is necessary, as the power and rule works today.

Whether workers, economic refugees or displaced persons, the main motive of immigrants is the prospect of a better future in a new place. "Charter cities" could here provide alternatives. Dr. Philipp Aerni is director of the Center for Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability at the University of Zurich and formed this idea of solution.

The former colony of Hong Kong is considered a model for cities with their own legal system.  According to Amnesty International 2014 230 million people were living not in their country of birth, 14.1 million have fled abroad, and 33.3 million have displaced in their own country. These figures will be even more dramatic since the summer of 2015 after the mass exodus from Syria. The low prospects of young refugees in Europe on social integration, work and marry create a breeding ground for frustration and radicalization. European politicians react to the current crisis with migration rehearsed left or right rhetoric. Enter either fully hospitable, or they present themselves as the voice of the alleged calls for the border closing of their own people. Both are signs of impotence. The positions also bear witness to a lack of long-term visions for the regions directly affected.

Floating, unbound and independent city-states for free people - spinning, or one day reality? Imagine you lived in a system in which you are required to buy a car. However, unilaterally determined by the seller model, equipment, engine and even the price! Buyers have to pay his choice in any case accept. Outlandish? Just replace the words "Seller" by "government" and "buyer" through "citizen", and you will notice that you are exactly in such a system.

As tax-paying citizen, you must sometimes co-finance subsidies for inefficient technologies, national television channels, chairs of gender studies and theology and likely also military missions abroad, even if you reject all of this. They will continue to be forced to take out pension, health and nursing care at predetermined conditions, whether you agree or not. You may not purchase bulbs, powerful vacuum cleaner, plastic bags or cigarette without warnings. In other words, you are not a client, but subject. Which contract is selling to you this tax as discharge of a supposed "social contract". This should exist between citizens and the state. Or at least to the citizens among themselves concluded such by transfering the part of their sovereignty to the state.

After the civil law of most jurisdictions Western-style would be highly questionable whether such a construct - we call it a submission contract - lack of certainty of its reciprocal transfers can ever be considered a person. Moreover applies under civil law agreement, when not agree on all the important points is not closed in doubt because of lack of agreement as such. One point is important in this sense, even if only one of the two parties subjectively considers it an important. All this argues against the existence of the supposed association.

Imagine unlike prior to a private company offering you as State Service protection of life, liberty and property - to the formulation of John Locke - in a given area. This performance includes about police, fire, emergency rescue, a legal framework and an independent judiciary. You pay a contractually fixed amount for these services per year. The state service as an operator of the community can not unilaterally change the contract later. You have a legal right to demand that it is respected, and a claim for damages for faulty performance. Everything else take care of yourself, but also can make what they want. And just take part, and as long as you like the offer. Disputes between you and the State Service are heard by independent tribunals, as is customary in international trade law. Ignoring the operator the arbitration awards or he abused his power in other ways, migrate its customers, and it goes into bankruptcy.

The homeland in the 21st century will be adopted home. People have already among countless goods. Offered the choice, can choose between a wide range for all areas of life insurance and constantly get new technical products. Why should they choose in the area of coexistence for the maintenance of a forced solution, which is expensive and poor overall functioning? How bad does it work, is reflected sometimes in mind that successful policy "set mark" nowadays on problem management and specialization. Especially the service providers of all income groups are not, however, put up with permanently excluded from the respective political class after line and thread and to be patronized, and without having any relevant voice. Private community solve this problem, which due to the system can not be solve by the Ancien Régime. Therefore, they will sooner or later emerge.
