If it were legal to secede from democratic decisions, the people
who did so would have to either hire others to provide the services
they opted out of, or form other collectives to provide them: in
other words, anarcho-capitalism. Even the most die-hard anarchist
has nothing against /voluntary/ democracy; but that's not democracy,
it's anarcho-capitalism. Those who want democracy can have it, so
long as they don't interfere with those of us who prefer freedom.
