Hello, pro, and thanks for the debate opportunity!

Claim of pro: The only way to effectively organize and distribute goods and services in absence of the state is to have as capitalist society. True capitalism actually requires there to be no state intervention. Furthermore, anarcho-communist or socialist philosophies ignore human nature.

Claim 1: The only way to equally distribute goods to citizens is through the absence of the state and currency.
Claim 2: There is no such thing as a free market.
Claim 3: "Anarcho"-capitalism is not an actual form of anarchism, because not only does it tolerate, but it embraces an unnecessary hierarchy.
Final Claim: Capitalism is contradictory to parts of human nature, not communism.

Now I shall define terms not for an argument, but for clarity.

Anarchism - "Belief in the abolition of all government and the organization of society on a voluntary, cooperative basis without recourse to force or compulsion."

Anarcho-Communism/Socialism - "Anarchist communism is a form of anarchism that advocates the abolition of the State and capitalism in favour of a horizontal network of voluntary associations through which everyone will be free to satisfy his or her needs"

"Anarcho"-Capitalism - "A market-based society with no government. Instead of government, all goods and services would be provided by private businesses."

State - "a nation or territory considered as an organized political community under one government." For further clarification, it is a country with a hierarchical government and borders.

If you disagree with any of these definitions pro, inform me in the comments and we can change them.

Good luck!

Definition: Anarcho-capitalism is a political philosophy which advocates the elimination of the state in favor of individual sovereignty, private property, and open markets. Anarcho-capitalists believe that in the absence of statute (law by decree or legislation), society would improve itself through the discipline of the free market. Anarcho capitalists also apply the non-agression principle serverly to create a voluntary society

A corporation is a legal concept that exists because of government. Government helps your business escape real liability for harm and helps you exclude competition in exchange for payment of corporate taxes. Without a state, there would be no such thing as corporation. Businesses of all sizes would be allowed to operate in a free environment and would be held liable by the laws of the market and their customers for any harm caused. Within the framework of a anarcho-capitalist society there can be traditional businesses as well as communal worker owned businesses.

One question before I start: In an "anarcho"-capitalist society, are large, multi communal corporations? Secondly, are hierarchical corporations tolerated?
