Anarcho-capitalism does not oppose governance, it opposes democracy.
Anarcho-capitalism is not actually anarchy, because it doesn’t actually oppose governance.
It is fine with private entities taking sovereignty over all of the land in the country. It is fine with such private entities imposing whatever rules they want onto inhabitants, and using force on rule breakers, because they’re “trespassers” when they do something they aren’t allowed to on someone else’s land. It is fine with such private entities taxing inhabitants, so long as those taxes are called “rent”. It is fine with such private entities consolidating and monopolizing their sovereignty over all of the land in the country.
Most importantly, Anarcho-capitalism is fine with any number of individuals having to live their entire lives under the governance of such private entities. Because if none of these private entities deemed those people to be worthy of sacrificing and transferring land sovereignty, those people just didn’t earn freedom from a fair free market system.
In other words, Anarcho-capitalism is ok with a limited number of individuals having governmental authority across the entirety of the US. The only governance it truly opposes is democracy. Consider how capitalists view an equal distribution of wealth. This is how Anarcho-capitalism views an equal distribution of political representation and sovereignty.
Anarcho-capitalism believes it would be more efficient to let capitalism determine who “deserves” to make laws and govern the masses, in the same way that we currently use capitalism to determine who “deserves” to make company policies and manage employees.
In short, anarcho-capitalism is an authoritarian form of statehood and governance, trying to hide behind technically not being our modern conception of what a government is.
We are a community which claims to advocate the virtues of personal liberty. It is shameful that we debate whether an ideology which justifies child labor, indentured servitude, and the removal of civil rights could be more libertarian than ideologies which justify public schools and food stamps, because “taxation is theft.”
