Part VI of Carl Watner's book I Must Speak Out has info on a lot of these topics, e.g. private libraries. Part IV of Street Smart has info on the history of private roads. Nathan Larson (talk) 17:56, 30 November 2012 (MSK)

I Must Speak Out contains a series of very relevant essays (Part VI). I've added links to the respective pages, thanks! Pestergaines (talk) 16:42, 25 February 2013 (MSK)

Spontaneous order

This has strong parallels with spontaneous order and Postrelian dynamism. Relying on voluntary cooperation favors a decentralized approach over central planning, since there is no supreme authority forcing people to conform to its vision of what should be done and how. If we want the scope to encompass that, then this call to action can also cover topics such as the development of the English language, open-source software, industrial standards, and so on.

The way things turned out, the focus of the project was mostly on privately supplied public goods, and even that is barely manageable. However, the topics you've mentioned definitely belong to voluntary cooperation, so the project can be expanded accordingly. I'm thinking of wrapping it up shortly, but anyone can pick it up again. Still a good point! Pestergaines (talk) 16:42, 25 February 2013 (MSK)
