One very valuable thing I've gained from my debates with you is that I've come to the conclusion that anarchy is impossible. I am not a proponent of anarchy anyway as I can think of many instances where I would use force even if it wasn't initiated on my first. However, anarchy is simply the absence of government, and government is simply the use of force by one or more individuals over another (governing one's actions). I govern my child by making him go to school. A bully governs a geek by sticking his head in a toilet.
Anarchy requires the lack of government, meaning nobody governs anyone elses actions. That is just naturally impossible.
Although I believe that a world with the least amount of coercive force used would be the best, I realize that nobody using force on anyone else is simply not possible. In that aspect, anarchy is like infinity. They are two concepts we use to show the yin to some other yang, but they are both nonsense and have no rational application.

Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).
