I would. And a country is a component of a free world. And a world
is a component of a free galaxy. And a galaxy is a component of a
free universe. Just because some guys shouting off about the size of
his super gun is no reason to think you're no longer free.

Maybe a FMC system wouldn't have a *central* bank, but it would have
several central systems for deciding currency. And even if it is
smaller, and there are more of them, and you can choose which one you
want to use - it's still centralist. And if each and every person
decides the value of his or her own currency - it's still centralist.
