Philosophically, I like the idea of anarchy but pragmatically speaking, I agree minarchy is probably more realistic.

It'd be interesting to hear e.g., David Friedman's take on what private/individual/voluntary-association-based defense against an invading army might look like under anarcho-capitalism, though. Seems like the kind of question that gets to the core of why states arise and to what degree they're more or less beneficial and to whom.

A constitutional republic like america once has been (before it got turned into today's democracy) seemed to work out really great.

It's simple game theory. Anarchy > state > gangs > anarchy. State is preferable to gangs, therefore we begrudgingly accept the state.
