The poor would not be poor or starving or homeless.
The rich would not lead lives as kings or gods upon the less fortunate.
Homes would be available for all that desire a home
food would be available for all that desire food, water would be available to that desire water, and life would be irrevocable.
Organizations would exist without structure, societies and communities would exist without government, and progress would exist without leaders
Indeed war would not exist.
Birth rate would go down and the population would go down to its natural levels
Contact with other societies would be limited
and the little contact that would exist would be on amiable terms seeing as one society may have something the second does not and vice versa, but neither would have more or less.
Every man, woman and child would do as they please.
This does not mean that people forget about others, but that groups of people within a society would pick projects and occupations that would serve them. There would be no currency for which those that work upon a project in a society would be paid. That which they work upon; be it a farm, bridge, road, irrigation system, or wall would be their payment. This does not mean however that if a farm is built I may not receive food or that if a road is laid that I may not walk upon it or if a wall is constructed that I may not live within it if I did not work upon it. Imagine the five projects listed above created in a society each by different groups of people. The irrigation system benefits and allows for farms which means a stable population growth and greater distance to the farm, so a road is laid for easier travel and transport of farm goods; same with the bridge; and the walls protect the inhabitants and products of the farm from wildlife. Each project benefited or benefited from all the other projects.
Religion too must be leaderless. No churches, mosques, synagogues or other altars may be created. Even in the home mother, father and child must pray individually and the beliefs of parent may not be spoken to children.

"Who stops the strong taking away from the weak?"
Hmm, well, think of this way. Ok in today's world it is not possible. It would require a smaller human population.
So yes the weak will perish, but that is a population control mechanism.
if there are kings then it isn't that anarchy doesn't work as a system (let's call it that for the sake of argument), but rather that it has ceased to exist.
These 12 men, if they are of say, of the society and are armed forces with a leader, than anarchy has simply ceased to exist.
But birth rates would go down, because we would be at a baser level and more miscarriages would take place.
Well of course that is following the idea that Man is created evil. So I suppose the nature of Man would be answered.
The people come together to realize that which is necessary or perish. Do you think those that do not contribute would be shared or liked? Of course not. The weak perish.
I'm not going to answer that final quote directly, but it will be answered with this. The creation of authority whether in the form of organized religion, armed services, organized crime or kings then anarchy is dead. That is not something wrong with the "system", but rather mankind. Also I do realize this is wishful thinking, that this is nearly impossible.
And also a complaint of modern society, of the egocentric world we live in.
