Seems to me like a (hopefully Friendly) seed AI is more likely to provide the "Schelling point" that'd provide an alternative to the modern US government than any sort of reactionary "antiversity".

EDIT: Come to think of it, a libertarian space society could probably do it, too, much the same way as the Soviet Union always had "surrender to the US" as an eject button.
