I've read all the theoretical posts. I've read about "rules" not "rulers" and I've seen Anarchists and Leninists and god-knows-what-else argue their case in the most esoteric terms.
I've seen quibbling over dictionary definitions. I've seen everything but a concise description of how this new, Anarchy based world would work.
So, a few questions:
Who will fix the roads, railways, and power stations?
Who will come to my aid when I fall off my bike and hurt myself, or conduct the investigation when I'm murdered or robbed?
Who will decide if I'm taking advantage of my employees, or if I am being taken advantage of?
Who will decide when it is appropriate to cut a tree, dig a quarry, or fish the river?
Who will decide where we put our trash?
Who will determine when an external threat is indeed a threat, and marshall the force to defend us against it?
These are only a few of the many questions that could be asked. It could go on, but I'm just looking to get a rough idea. You're the anarchists, tell me how it's done -- not that I don't understand the theory, not that I ought to read this or that, but tell me how these very basic government functions would be performed in a world without leaders.
Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you.
