You said give an example of a voluntary government, an hoa is an example.

What are you talking about full government?

The fastest growing form of housing in the United States today is
common-interest developments (CIDs), a category that includes
planned-unit developments of single-family homes ,
condominiums, and cooperative apartments .[1] Since 1964,
homeowner associations have become increasingly common in
the USA. The Community Associations Institute trade association
estimated that HOAs governed 24.8 million American homes and
62 million residents in 2010.[2]

What if the HOA is formed AFTER you move in but formed by a majority of the homeowners with rules that apply to all?
Then that wouldnt be voluntary, it is a deed restriction I believe that you have to consent.

So, you've proven that you're a double dunce.
You failed to understand my post.
You've not understood an iota of the logic I provided.
I elucidated the issue under consideration in my previous post and in general it explains every facet of human activity using the mind-matter model - mind conceives, physical instrumentation executes under guidance from the mind. Without the mind there will be no materialization of ideas.
Go back, if interested, and re-read my previous post.
You've got the IQ of a moron.
Ok momo if that is the case i will put you out of my mind and you will disapear, good bye.

Or what about the new owner of a house who is FORCED to agree to the provision in order to purchase his property? Shouldnt that new onwer be given a choice?
And before someone suggests that in that case, the new owner can always look elsewhere, doesnt that owner have the right to buy property anywhere if he/she can afford it?
And furthermore, HOA are not full governments. Residents still have to abide by local, state and federal laws, and depend on real government to provide them services. There are NO cases in the US where a HOA has legally superceded a real government (in fact there is actually case law here in CT that when a HOA restriction conflicts with local zoning law, in some cases the local zoning law actually supercedes the HOA ((i.e. the LESS restrictive zoning law.)
Doesnt matter, it is an example of a voluntary government and works through a real contract unlike the imaginary social contract that you talk about.

I agree to a point, but remember ATF is an absolutist on the issue of property rights. So if he believes in absolute property rights, to be consistent he should believe he has the right to buy into a a HOA area and NOT follow its rules if he chooses.
Which is counter to his ideal notion - because what if he CHOOSES to buy in, and abide by the rules BUT the guy next door lawfully acquires property and chooses not to join the HOA? How does that make an effective HOA? I suppose he could argue that his HOA could be geographically scattershot in implementation for that reason, but these organizations traditionally cover common infrastructure....so to be effective they would have to have a 100% buy in, and they do for that reason.
<quoted text>
<quoted text>
I think it is in case of overlapping jurisdictions, i.e. the town has subdivision regulations that say you can split the lots for development, but the local organization says you can not. However, if there is something in the deed, it might pre-empt BOTH groups. I am not 100% sure.
for stuff like grass height, that isnt usually addressed by town regs - except perhaps if they have nuisance ordinances
Its all pretty fascinating when you think about it.
I don't know much about "absolutists" but I do know a handful of Libertarians, and the ones I know do believe in honoring contracts. If the HOA were preexisting, then as ATF mentions, it would probably be a deed restriction (or the legal equivalent) on buying the property.

I think local ordinances usually address something where they can force you to keep your yard up to some sort of minimal standards. And think any HOA would be if anything even more restrictive.(which I don't think would conflict with the local regs) But I'm not a RE attorney either.(Only a former Realtor and RE investor)

and even if you, live within a hoa. the city or state, will not take care of your roads, or utilities. but you still have to pay the state and or city tax for them. and the hoa association, has even been known, to sell someones home without the owners permission. the hoa is a republic, not a democracy.

Personally the notion of these restrictions abhor me. But then I moved to a small street and I can see how some could get pissed off at their neighbors parking willy nilly up and down the street in front of others houses.
I had a friend in New Canaan who got in trouble because she washed her car in her driveway. That was a no no - next door neighbor actually called the COPS on her. And they came. Can you imagine?
No doubt neighbors can be a real pain in the axs (and their visitors). Two houses a ago we had a partially shared driveway. What were we thinking?!

New Canann is even richer than Greenwich. But I never heard of a place where you couldn't wash your car in your own driveway. Are you sure it wasn't a time of water restriction?

But partial governments are a dime a dozen. heck, my College fraternity was a shadow government.

We were giving you an opportunity to promote your ideas as a PRACTICAL ALTERNATIVE to the type of societal organization that has been necessary, and that has been somewhat involuntary, and that has emerged over the last, say, 20000 years (I am starting my timeline with the retreat of the glaciers, I could start earlier if you wish).

You have failed.

not always - if there are common infrastructure to be maintained there may already be an legal organization in place - and how to enlarge the obligations and responsibilities of that organization in most likelihood follows there articles of incorp which may or may not not include deed restrictions.

You don't consent to eminent domain either.

When you buy the house, you consent but correct - in my example it is NOT voluntary. The HOA was formed AFTER you moved in.

Tyranny of the majority.

No, the hoa is agreed upon, consent.
First when it is created the home owner has to agree and then when ownership is transferred it is a deed restriction.
The buyer is fully aware of the hoa.

Its been a lot of years, so I dont know. My friend WAS a bit crazy. I never understood why the cops enforced it either considering it was supposedly a neighborhood rule. I do know for a fact police were involved.

It is an example of a voluntary government, the only problem is the deed restriction which couldnt happen in a voluntary society.

Undemocratic

Some scholars and the AARP charge that in a variety of ways HOAs suppress the rights of their residents.[17] Due to their nature as a non-governmental entity, HOA boards of directors are not bound by constitutional restrictions on governments, although they are essentially a de facto level of government.[18]
