Why not a Stateless Society?

My post on a forum, in response:

Human nature is not chaotic. We are a very ordered species, having evolved as such by a process of organization perpetuated by the evolutionary advantage that it confers. We instinctively organize ourselves into family units and tribes. The complexity of the modern world has necessitated a larger government with more specialized functions than in the past.

Those who propose anarchy as a solution to the world's ills are offering either a thinly veiled return to agrarian society, or the very frightening prospect of submitting to corporate rule. It is an instinctive, although illogical proposal: Society 1 does not function properly, therefore its opposite system, Society -1 must be adopted instead.
