Not sure what "it" replaces, and "what way" you're referring to.
The very basic nature of anarchism is to reject the 'authority' of the state and reject the absurd claim that the state(a collection of criminals!) gets to define what crime is.
I don't think there's anything else to add here.

yes, as mentioned above, the whole non-argument of the statists is just this laughable circular idea : "we are right because we define reality, and if you don't obey us then we kill you"

well, you certainly should get defensive because barrett is the worst kind of threat you could face.
