I think Anarcho-Capitalism is a better idea. Its the best of both worlds, really. There is no government regulations telling you how, when and with whom to do your business and nobody has the right to take your property or money from you (i.e. taxes, etc.). Just my $0.02

With anarchy, there is no law.
So if someone wants to kill you, they can. The only way to prevent that is to CONSTANTLY defend yourself, or have a family member avenge you.
The powerful will get many followers, enslaving people.
But ANYTHING can happen. I like having a sense of security. Anarchy is the step before government. Government is not bad, it is the people who run it at times.
If this country was under anarchy, or has been, you can kiss all of your sweet toys good bye.
In the words of anarchist L. Susan Brown: "While the popular understanding of anarchism is of a violent, anti-State movement, anarchism is a much more subtle and nuanced tradition then a simple opposition to government power. Anarchists oppose the idea that power and domination are necessary for society, and instead advocate more co-operative, anti-hierarchical forms of social, political and economic organisation." [The Politics of Individualism, p. 106]

Two hundred years ago, we in the US were given the greatest opportunity mankind was ever given.
We were blessed with men I truly believe were inspired by the Great Architect, otherwise, they could not have come up with a document as they provided us.
Continually blessed, we began our own undoing.

That's not completely true. Under our current system today poor people are barred from owning businesses anyways-- so this system would allow for people to own their own business without government license-- even poor people could do it.
Poor people could create their own business.
Under government capitalism-- only people who have vested interest with the government can have a business.
Here-- poor people could form any business they want. And besides, I would like a moderate form of anarchy... perhaps a mix between both-- anarcho-capitalism and social anarchy.
