Space Property Rights and The Western Frontier

Jonathan Card has an article in The Space Review discussing space property rights and the frontier. He makes the valid point that the biggest issue space colonists will have to deal with are not rogue nations going to war, but piracy and lawlessness. Some form of government will be necessary to provide the police forces necessary to maintain order. For without the rule of law, and the means of enforcing the law, the frontier will not move forward.
