Dead on for me. Left libertarian.

Anarcho doesn't belong on the right or rather it doesn't belong with Capitalism. I wasn't anywhere close to saying there aren't anti-authoritarian types on the right. I'm well aware of the differences between left and right libertarianism and no collectivism vs individualism isn't the left/right line. There's collectivism and individualism on both sides of libertarian. I'm not personally a collectivist outside of small family/friend groupings and I do like co-ops as a business model... but I don't like mandated anything, so voluntary individualism or collectivism is the only correct path I see.

Rebuking of authority is the only thing we have in common, I am a socialist and you are a capitalist. We are like oil and water. Private ownership of vast amounts of land, of the means of production spells authority to me... just not the government variety. Given a choice I'd have to say, no thank you, that's not freedom.

You're on the right and libertarian quadrant of the political spectrum! You prize individualism and personal liberty above all else. You believe in private property and the free market. You tend to be patriotic but you're sceptical of the state and you find little to no value in government institutions. You believe that success depends on the individual's ability to pull themselves up by their own boot straps and take advantage of the opportunities they have. You see taxes as a form of oppression and you believe that the greatest threat to freedom is big government. You believe in a society of independent and hard-working individuals who take care of themselves. You want big brother out of your bedroom, out of your bank account, and off your property!

Sure it can.

Anarcho-capitalism is simply the idea that anyone can make or sell anything they want unhindered by regulation and the legal code and similarly, the consumer can likewise buy anything they want. Strictly speaking, all anarchy means is the absence of political authority.

I don't go that far as I don't believe in things like human trafficking which would, strictly speaking be technically legal under true anarcho-capitalism in my understanding.

No. Anarchy literally means: An=no, archy= hierarchy, no hierarchy, no bosses. Can you explain how Capitalism can work with no bosses?

Yep, self-employed, no employee.
