Spontaneous Order: Shout it From the Rooftops

I have found a great example of what’s possible when we break rules in the city.  At some point, someone decided that the Beattles ought to have a rooftop concert. Something that fortunately was captured on film. Watch what happens.

[editors note: Ironically, the forces of copyright darkness unplugged the youtube video. You’ll have to use this link instead of an embed: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xtrooe_the-beatles-rooftop-concert-london-original-version_music#.UYaSEeD0jkY]

The world is best when there is authority, and there are some rules to live by. But often the rules need to be broken, relaxed, or repealed. When that happens there can be some magic. With Zero Based Zoning, the outcome we’d see would be like this rooftop concert; talented people pushing the limits, making some noise, creating some extra traffic, some crowds, but in the end, making other people happy.
