Freedom vs order: is there a place for self-regulation in new public spaces?

In recent years Moscow has changed and become more friendly towards its citizens and guests. One by one new liberal-style public spaces have emerged. In it, people begin to feel and behave more freely - we increasingly prefer the steps of the shops to benches, instead of the bar we go to the “Yama” public space with our wine, have picnics instead of breakfast at home. The city is getting brighter and a little closer, but at the same time, noisier and dirtier.

How to effectively maintain order in such places? Are we ready to rely on self-regulation, or can we still not do without strict legal norms?
