now you are just being obtuse

When have the anarchists on this site ever stated that we are opposed to laws? Why do you keep confusing anarchy with lawlessness?

Also, the same two arguments you trounce up could be used to shut you up about minarchism.

1) If minarchism is so great, why don't you go find an island somewhere and start your own minarchist nation? (BTW, while there are uninhabited islands out there, there are no unclaimed islands out there. Each piece of land is claimed by some State.)

2) Notice that no serious thinker from the Classical Greek and Roman civilization, to the Anglo and American heirs of two thousand years of political thought, up to before our founding fathers, ever advocated minarchism. Does that somehow negate your argument? Our founding fathers were the first. They advanced the human race. Now we are advancing it further. I mean, what kind of argument is this anyway? Just because for 2,000 years, no one has made an airplane, airplanes are an invalid concept?
