: I've already blown Gee's anarcho-capitalist utopia out of the water, by showing that in the absence of government the landlords would hire their own armies to force tenants to pay the rent; he continues to believe. His response was that I had a low opinion of "human nature," to assume (as I do) that people would continue to do what they're doing today.

And lets not forget the Bhopal factor, his and Joel's acceptance of the notion of Natural monopoly, and my own explosions of the notion of a competition of violence, rather than a monopoly, oh, and also the whole money question...

All of which are as yet unresolved at the time of writing.
