I found the article to not really be all that interesting. The comparison of "governments" breaks down at a fundamental level. Real governments are coercive, not in any way voluntary. EvE alliances are strictly voluntary, what I would call self-government.

Exactly. EVE is more of an example of anarchy and "natural aristocracy" than anything. I'm sorta glad too, because it shows both the good and the bad of it (even though I am a market anarchist...). It shows it can work, but it's not always nice or pretty.
