Couldn't get it to work...

: SDF: Anarcho-capitalism is a phony ideal through and through. Capitalist competition needs government to make sure the competitors don't get out of hand. Without it, capitalist competition will always degenerate into a regime of theft and syndicates. There is something to the possiblity of socialism, though its realization is far far away.

Lets not forget that thorny issue of how many can exist without the state, we've yet to here a convincing argument on that one yet. Still waiting.
