Voluntary is to choose.
Autonomous is to do alone.
One can autonomously (on their own) choose to be in a community. This would be a voluntary action.
If you believe that community (which is not autonomous) is important then you would choose it voluntarily as would all others whom value it as you do.
If community is a universal value then there would be many communities. IF it is not, you can hardly advocate for a personal preference to be forced on the unwilling majority.
If your community chooses to build roads you can choose to share your road with a neighboring community. You can enter into a contractual relationship with them. You can form another kind of voluntary relationship at a different level of intimacy with this community, or not.
If roads are a universal value then there would be many roads and many communities wishing to enter such arrangements previously described. If not, you can hardly advocate for a personal preference to be forced on the unwilling majority.
Substitute the words community and roads for anything else and you understand the theory of a voluntary society and how it works.
I appreciate you for reading this, voluntarily.
