We already have partial socialism. Fire and police, public roads and bridges, primary education, and of course social security. Which of those do you want to fail?

I'd like to see the police department go under. Fire departments are voluntary, so is driving.

SS is forced and involuntary.

So everyone would have to pay for their own securiry services. Since the courts are socialized too, you would need to pay the court costs to try a criminal, then pay to incarcerate him as well. Don't be blinded by free market principles. They aren't the best choice for every situation.

I want an "a-economic" system. A society void of money.

How would this system trade goods and services?

That’s it? That was all you could come up with?

No, actually Libertarian Socialism is all about freedom. It’s about human liberation:

Libertarian Socialism is about collective ownership, solidarity and groupthink. I can't even own myself in such a system.

No, LS is about collective and individual freedom. Read the link.

What is "collective" freedom?
