*-free zones

Zef Hemel,  car-free zones: 

What about freedom from other things? Cities like IRC, a hundred different channels, each with their own focus, and their own acceptances.

We already have alcohol-controlled zones (anti-social-free zones?) so keep going. A politic-free zone. an electronic-free zone. an emotion-free zone. a music-free zone.

Of course, freedom from one thing implies freedom to enjoy something else. By banning cars/alcohol/politics/music/etc,  what are we really designing our zones to give us?
