    Alright, you've abolished the state overall, so what's stopping a person becoming a warlord and turning it into a feudalist condition? or how do the people in this new society defend themselves from outside threats?

    There is no answer because Anarch-Communism by itself doesn't make any sense at all.

    Classic answer: Anarchy isn't Anomie, and there'll either be no reason for anyone to become a warlord or society will stop those warlords.
    Anarchy apparently does not exclude temporary and soft hierarchies, and all sorts of work still need to get done, requiring cooperation and division of labour. Inside and outside threats would be met with council and democratically reached consensus.
    Of course, this is highly idealistic and would crumble within one week max in real life.

    The real question is who are/is more retarded/entertaining, An-Coms or An-Caps?

    AnCaps for sure. They're at the very least funny. AnComs take themselves way, way too seriously and get far too fucking angry immediately to be funny. They're like religious conservatives in that regard. They're just incapable of humour.

    I swear half the AnCap memes are made by AnCaps themselves, the nutty bastards.

    AnComs are just Communists with even smaller brains. If they took over a country, it would be a standard Communist dictatorship that uses violent leftists as an excuse for violent leftist authoritarianism.

    AnCaps are fookin fun, and the world they'd create if they took over a country would be a bloody fun one.

    Wouldn't an Ancap situation look very similar to a cyberpunk dystopia where corps or freelancers provide all services? Much funner than the sullen and downtrodden masses listening to the river boatmen of the volga song.
