I second what you are saying. What I think some folks are missing is that there is no ideological purity among an-caps/libertarians. So I would argue that an-caps can be fascists and I think you could also argue that perhaps that was the intention of some of the more influential writers. However I have met some so called an-caps/libertarians that are basically market socialists but don't know it because of all the cold war propaganda. Have to take it case by case. Sometimes names don't really mean all that much.

I agree, tho I think the ancaps that are ambivalent to hierarchy rather than market socialist can often still be decent.

Like so many if the things anarchists r for such as indigenous sovereignty, anti war, less regulation to make it easier to do anarchist projects i.e. house and medicine, anti the government propping up capitalists. So in most cases the standard libertarian response "cool do your thing and I am extremely opposed to the government trying to stop u"

Sure it's not ideal but I can work with that mindset and get along with that. While I have many philosophical differences many Anarcho capitalists and their ideology pose far substantially less risk than other groups to my goals and are sometimes extremely helpful.
