In every community there has to be rules to prevent people from running around raping, stealing and killing and to maintain cohesion of society.
In every community there has to be rules to prevent people from running around raping, stealing and killing and to maintain cohesion of society. In its most simple form a society built on Anarchist priniciples would only work as long as there is basic law and order in a community with a clear leadership structure.
People won't last long if they are independent, they can't possibly have every skill under the sun to sustain themselves for very long. That's why there has to be community, and in a community there has to be law, and a community is many, many times stronger than an independent person.
The anarchist who thinks he/she can do anything will soon find out, perhaps painfully, that the community (the large majority of communities) won't be very agreeable with the 'Do what you will' philosophy of the most hardcore anarchist and/or satanist.
