It would depend on the context. In the case of a contractual agreement
of some sort, you could easily just settle on a 3rd party to arbitrate
disputes in advance. If the absence of such an agreement, the two
parties could just negotiate and hopefully come to an agreement on
who would settle a given dispute. Worst case, it reduces to the same
situation as any dispute between sovereign powers: diplomacy first, and
if things can't be settled, the final option to resolve conflict is
In actuality though, in a society based on the principle I'm proposing
I imagine most people would simply choose to accept a system very
much like our existing court system to settle disagreements. After all
it's a reasonable system, although not without failings.
Then the issue just becomes "what do you do about a dispute between
somebody who accepts one system and a person who does not accept that
system?" That leaves you no worse off though, than what I said in
the first paragraph.
