Why can't the people come together to defend their own communities? We don't need a state to protect us from ourselves.

Agreed, but how can we stop a group that's bigger than our group? Or a group more willing to be extra violent. I don't know. I just worry about this stuff.

Stop them from doing what? If everyone is equal and everyone has what they need to prosper, why would they attack their neighbors? And if they do kill their neighbors and double their resources, why would other communities tolerate warlords? They'd form a militia to take them out before they invade the next town.

You don't worry about people feeling like they didn't get their fair share? In my life, I've jl seen people who hate for no reason and it scares me. Just look at our current political situation. I agree with you about how great it would be and is worth doing. I guess I'm just scared.

Sorry to irritate you. I thought it was a valid point. I've met a lot of nut jobs in my life.

one response to this is that a lot of the 'hate for no reason' comes from psychosocial dislocations and socioeconomic inequalities caused by hierarchical social systems.

warlords might arise, all an anarchist community could do is form militias to resist them. hopefully warlords would have hierarchical militias, because the anarchist non-hierarchical ones would have a way better chance of winning. but it might lose too. that's just the way things go
