I really don't get this petulance. If you really believe your anarchist ideas are so great, why the reluctance to sell us on them? Why not talk about how your anarchist utopia deals with the roving warlord, and how that's not the same as how a nation would deal with it?

Okay, how? Are you going to round up a posse and go after the warlord? If so, how is that substantially different from using an army?

Suppose the citizens of the new state don't want you to get rid of it. What then? Do you use force? Where do you derive the right to do that?

Alright, educate me then. How am I using them wrong? What do they actually mean? Why are you so reluctant to explain your ideas?
