A state would force everyone in every community to operate the exact same way (whichever way is dictated by the party leaders or at least the majority of voters). This would ignore the distinct needs of people from very different communities that have different climates, cultures, infrastructure, etc. If each community manages itself using direct democracy, each community can operate in whatever way best suits that community rather than be dictated to by a central government that can't hope to understand the needs of people hundreds of miles away.
