There is so much wrong with

There is so much wrong with the Somalia argument. First of all, Somalia collapsed after it tried heavy socialism. It went on for years and got worse and worse. It wasn't until the state became anarchic that things actually turned around. Yes, everything got better once they went toward anarchy.

Somalia has been over-run by warlords who are funded and armed by the Western governments and banks.

If you understand the situation, this is actually a win for the anarchy argument. Africa as a whole has been war-torn for centuries and subject to invasion and confiscation. There is no way to compare any normal scenario of libertarianism or anarcho-capitalism to somalia because of this fact.
