I can go along with that. I usually demur from calling myself an anarchist because I fear that it would imply that I deny the kingship of Jesus.
But outside of that unique case, there does not exist any elite subset of society with the right to manipulate the rest by force. And even in that unique case, Christ does not exercise his rule by force. Those who are his subjects are his subjects voluntarily. The kind of king he is is the kind who rides a donkey, rather than a war horse. The kind of sword he uses is the kind that comes from his mouth. And the blood in which his robe is soaked is his own.
Given those stipulations, and notwithstanding my own misgivings about the label, the practical result is one that most impartial observers would classify as anarchism.
