Ah. It's in the "Hitler too was a vegetarian" category.

There can't be a society without resource expense towards its upkeep, hence something is taken away from the participants. And they get something in return. A justice system, the police or military protection for example.

Pretending otherwise is just naive.

Basically, only anarchism is fundamentally without the "We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good." idea.
