Anarcho-capitalists hold that "anarchy", meaning "without rulers", implies that people should be free to own property and engage in business. They hold that preventing them from voluntarily doing so would be a form of institutionalized coercion, and therefore by definition not anarchy. They accept that this would mean some inequality in society, but they argue that equality must not be enforced by social coercion.
