Maybe that can mostly be brought within the scope of "Relations among
individuals should be by mutual consent, or not at all."

My main quarrel would be that when he writes of doing things "as a
society" he probably means single decisions applied to all and imposed
on dissidents by force.

Other quarrels that I may have are marginal and would be diversionary
to discuss here.

> Do you think people should provide nothing as a society?

Each individual is free to provide, or to contribute to providing.
These individuals together constitute "society".

It doesn't need collective decisions imposed on dissidents by force.

Each party to every trade is providing something to the other parties
(else the trade wouldn't go forward).  Trade is win-win, positive-sum.

An individual certainly should not have a congenital perpetual
obligation that cannot be discharged.
