After watching this, I almost feel sorry for anarchists

Almost, but not quite, because anyone who buys Larken's simplistic rhetoric has earned the right to be a weak link in human evolution. And we know what that means, bye bye anarchists, don't let the door hit you on the way out.

Larken suggests that stealing property didn't exist before gov't, and will not exist in a stateless society. This is of course not true. History is full of Non-Governmental Organizations (barbarians) for whom raping and pillaging was a way of life. Four thousand years ago, the Hammurabic Code was based on the principle that "the strong shall not injure the weak". The code of Hammurabi was a response to the raping and pillaging of barbarians. But Larken suggests the absense of government will not lead to anarcho-barbarism because people will voluntarily subscribe to the fabled Non-Aggression Principle. And like I said, anyone who believes that nonsense has earned the right to become extinct. Goodbye anarcho-barbarians.
