What details?

Because our system won't solve every murder, you call that a failure? Prove that yours can.

You build this monumental system, that steals, uses force, and violates the basic premise of liberty and effort to solve a murder... And still fail. Our system acknowledges that there can/will be failures and attempts to reduce the failure without harming anyone, while yours harms a great in an effort to achieve perfection.

Now, let me explain an additional finer point. In the case of a state, it is assumed that all the people own all of everything. It is communal in nature. This is illustrated by property tax and the inability to leave the jurisdiction.

If, in anarchism, I wanted to leave the jurisdiction and not have anyone be responsible but myself, for instance to save money. I should be able to buy land, own it, and set my own laws/rules, and start my own community, or be a community of one.

You cannot buy land from the state. They will always own it and claim jurisdiction over you. You can only "escape" by moving into another jurisdiction, not by starting your own, hence, no real choice in the matter. No competition. A tightly controlled semi-monopoly, even if there was no federal government, the states may act in collusion to pass all the same rules making it irrelevant to switch (car insurance is an excellent example of this scenario).
