I suppose you could get together with some of your neighbors and set up some sort of collective arrangement where everybody agrees on rules for appropriate behaviour and collectively uses force to make sure that outsiders do not violate these agreements, but that that point you've basically reinvented government.
No, at that point what you have is one possible service provider in a potentially competitive market - as opposed to the monopoly system we have now.
But someone has to set policy for all of you, otherwise you just have anarchy
Anarchy would be awesome. That's the state of not having parasites (rulers). Or as I like to call it, being grown up. Setting rules simply for the sake of having rules is ridiculous.
Being welcomed to a country you are not citizen of is not a human right
Being able to buy and sell and rent property and employ people is. The government doesn't own this country and has no right to set policy for all of us.

While I'm no fan of government regulation, I have the feeling that this is part-and-parcel of "too big to fail", and requires government intervention. Companies should not be allowed to grow beyond a certain size. If a company reaches that size, it must divest or split itself into smaller, independent entities.
Surely the main reason we have such monstrously large companies is government intervention in the first place, due to the "too big to fail" mentality.
Ever notice that even the busiest people are never too busy to tell you just how busy they are?
