I think the big divide is a different one

If you believe in a a possible future in which the vast majority of people are motivated by rational self-interest, and consistently take a long-term and well-informed view of things when making decisions, then you'll love anarcho-capitalism.

If you believe that in any possible future, just as in the actual present, the vast majority of people will be irrational, inconsistent, short-sighted and uniformed, then no matter how much you agree with the ACs philosophically otherwise you probably view a minimal government as a necessary evil.
