But without politicians, how do you get things done short of war? If you and another state/district have a trade dispute or whatever, how does it get settled without bloodshed?

In the US in the 60's a lot of the student protests over Vietnam were because they were old enough to be sent to die but not old enough to vote for the people sending them to their deaths. Without politicians, how would such wrongs get corrected given there could be true injustices that are actually endorsed by the majority?

IOW, how do you get around the phrase "Necessary Evil"?
