As an anarcho-socialist, I happen to agree with Fred's belief.
I oppose state intervention into personal, social and economic affairs; I reject the state in its entirety as it inevitably results in the loss of individual freedom.
I believe that we have the ability to live collectively, productively, cooperatively and peaceably based on our common interests that are inherent to mankind. We don't need to be ruled or dominated. Collectively, we have enough intelligence and common sense (based on our experiences) to determine what is right and what is wrong in our relationships with others.
As a stateless society, the working class will collectively own the means of production (wealth) and the distribution of goods and services for the benefit of everyone according to each individual's own self-defined needs.
I see the state as the means (tool) by which the elite ruling class rules.
While you consider Fred's belief as a far right-wing extremism, you might as well include me in your ridicule and condemnation -- even though I am so far left of U.S. Libertarianism that they need a telescope to even see me.
By the way, my anarchist anti-state beliefs are shared by the World Socialist Movement. You see, we prefer not to be dominated, oppressed or stolen from. It's just that simple.
