In what dictatorship did the weak have a chance?
about 175 million people died in the hands of government in the 20th century
about 8 million people died in the hands of people
Whats more evil?
No it isn't it is the absent of any ideology beyond individual freedom to do as you want.
No it is not, even if capitalism in part requires ownership rights and in an anarchic society owning things can be daunting as they require individual enforcement of that ownership.
It would be extremely hard to get a complex legal system off the ground and working when the premise is that you are free to do as you like, some soft of things could be kept under control but only if generally seen as beneficial and so enforced by everyone.
Not really anti-government but an extremely reduction of to regard everyone as a personal state, as with today it would be possible to establish a mutual agreed bureaucracy to keep somethings going but since all the states would be at the same level only very significant goals would get any traction. (as above)
You are cherry picking some characteristics that are under anarchy only dependent on the individuals needs
It is an ideology: a system of ideas and ideals, esp. one that forms the basis of economic or political theory and policy.
It is (anti-capitalist). In anarchism the only private property that is recognized is personal including a home, car etc. In anarchy you are only free to do as you like if you are not exploiting another person, group or land/water in a way which renders it useless for others.
Capitalism clashes with anarchy at every point. Anarcho-capitalist is an oxymoron.
It's utterly impossible currently to implement anarchism, most anarchists including myself don't advocate for anarchism to go into effect at this time.
Capitalism is an economic system in which trade, industry and the means of production are controlled by private owners with the goal of making profits in a market economy. Central characteristics of capitalism include capital accumulation, competitive markets and wage labor. In a capitalist economy, the parties to a transaction typically determine the prices at which assets, goods, and services are exchanged
capital accumulation competitive markets wage labor That is a hierarchy.
Anarchy is a transition phase when the current regime collapse. It is not a government. From Anarchy u can turn into a Constitution Republic like America, or if someone sells hope and change like Fidel Castro u may get Communism or Fascism.
