Okay, very simply could someone explain to me what the main differences between anarcho-capitalism and anarchism are? I haven't thought this far into it all, i'm at the stage of saying no to rulers and capitalism. So what are the main things an anarcho capitalist does differently? And would you still class yourself, in the broader term, as an anarchist?

All anarcho-capitalists are anarchists, but not all anarchists are anarcho-capitalists.

Yes, I call myself an anarchist to strangers. The term "anarcho-capitalist" is too much of a mouthful and most people will only be doubly confused.

anarchy = without rulers
capitalism = free trade/market

Not all those that wish not to be ruled embrace the free market.

The standard anarchist response to this question is that AnCaps support hierarchy where anarchists do not.
