Certainly...

I agree that theft, kidnapping and violence are immoral -- but I'm wanting to make sure what is being advertised as an end of things is really an end of these things.

If there is no Liberty for a visitor on private property (the owner can tell him he's not allowed to belong to such and such religion if he wants to be on his property, for example), and the entire world is subdivided into these private governments run by the lords of each land, then there is no true Liberty for the person who has no land. There is no place he can truly go to exercise his religion as he sees fit -- he will always be subject to the whims of which lord he happens to be visiting. No theft, kidnapping or violence has occurred; but there are still these private types of property-rights governments.

I have the feeling that 'no government' is not an actual possible condition -- it's just a debate between types of governments; and the degree to which the highest principles of Love and Liberty can be achieved under each type.
