"No taxes, no space police, fiat law. Colonists of the new world did much as they pleased when they landed, why should space be any different? It's even easier without any natives (that we know of)."

Any Martian colony will be completely dependent on resupply from Earth. That gives Earth-based authorities a pressure point.
