Comment: "You didn't build that. Somebody else built it."

"You didn't build that. Somebody else built it."

The market you worship and hold up as the essence of anarchy is a product of the law that protects property and makes economic activity possible.

This - the basis of your argument - is flatly wrong. This is like saying that, "Without prisons, there would be no micro-economies that run on cigarettes. The prisoners should be thankful. (By the way, cigarette economies have emerged among soldiers as well. They are not unique to prison.) In reality however, money always naturally arises as a medium of exchange. The market exists independently of any state complex.

Further, natural law exists independently of any state complex. The absence of a state doesn't forbid contracts. The writing down of contracts developed as the ability to write became more prevalent, but they existed even before that. At one time, debt contracts were recorded with the use of tally sticks - potentially as far back as 18,000 to 20,000 BC. Below, is a picture of a relatively young (reportedly 16th century) tally stick:

Your argument boils down to, "Without government, we wouldn't have iPhones." Frankly, that's bologna.
