A Statist Question in Search of a Libertarian Answer

"How do we create a free society?" sounds like a statist question in search of a libertarian answer. This is perhaps why it is unlikely to lead to many such answers of acceptable quality. Perhaps a more fruitful question to ask in this context is "how do I create or expand my personal free space and help specific others create or expand their personal free spaces?", knowing that a free society is nothing but the sum total of such private spaces and their voluntary interactions. Perhaps only millions of individual answers to this particular question can create a robust collective network of individual solutions - that is, a free society in the making.
