Police is today the guard of the rich and powerfull and many fascists become police officers.

A hardcore commie explained me in Communism there is no policeforce.

But who comes when a guy beats drunken his girlfriend, there has to be a kind of police or vigilante group.

As I understand it, this is the one social situation of potential social harm that would be mostly unpreventable post-capitalism -- 'crimes of passion'. On the other hand transcending private property relations would mean no more landscape of competing nation-states with their nationalist militaries, no more top-of-the-world hegemonic U.S. imperialism, etc.

You just stumbled upon and showed why communal anarchy is an idiotic concept and could only exist not in a utopia, but a dystopia. Human civilization functions on hierarchy. If you remove that, then civilization either breaks down or finds a different master (eg artificial intelligence). So yeah there could be a purely communist society where everyone is equal and nobody owns the means of production-except the robots controlling everything. Suddenly Matrix.

You'd be willing to follow an AI-led hierarchy -- ? Awesome.

I prefer Skynet myself, but, yeah, I'll always have a place in my heart for the Matrix. (grin)

Let's keep some emergency *sledgehammers* around for the time being....
