Anarchy and capitalism. A person who believes in the dissolution of government, but adheres to property rights.
An individual who believes in anarcho-capitalism would cringe at the thought of watching a Michael Moore documentary.

From 'a' meaning 'without' and 'arch' meaning rulers plus capitalism. In other words capitalism without rulers. Rulers are taken as the state, whilst the term 'capitalism' included is taken to coincide with the liberal definition of capitalism as opposed to the Marxist one. That of freedom only finishing where the freedom of another is curtailed.
Anarcho-capitalism would be like now but without drug prohibition hence without drug gangs; without taxes hence without low wages and economic underperfomance; without the state hence without war.

An oxymoron. A capitalist society cannot be anarchist, simply because wealth equals power. Whenever someone gets rich, he gains power over others, thus effectively nullifying all principles anarchism is predicated upon.
Proponents of anarcho-capitalism and other right-wing libertarians only want the state off their backs so they can exploit the workers even more.

Anarcho-Capitalism is redundent in using the term "capitalism". With anarchy there is no government...hence no restrictions on capitalism. It's like saying Libertarian who loves freedom, or intelligent genius.
Anarcho-Capitalism promotes a stateless society, where people are unprotected from buying things they might actually want. Anarcho-Capitalism allows employers to pay employees whatever they want...but what's worse is it allows employees to actually accept any wage they want.

Otherwise known as free market anarchism. The only political philosophy that offers true freedom in all respects - Both politically, and economically. It entails a lack of formal government combined with a completely free market.
Anarcho-capitalism is the most viable form of anarchism.

A system that has one rule: "whoever has the gold, makes the rules, and there are no rules, except making more and money while the rest starve."
The system called anarcho-capitalism dictates that your landlord, demands your money or else you will live in the street.

Contradictory. Anarchists have always been opposed capitalism. End of story.
Anarcho-capitalism is just capitalism without any regulations. Basically, if we lived in such a system, it would be 10 times worse than what we have now.
