I think generally speaking, a society should try to maximize the quality of life for those who live in it now and for the future, perhaps a bit similar to the utilitaristic ideal of maximizing happiness / minimizing suffering. I have slightly more detailed ideas on how to best achieve that long term, but none of them have included anarchy so far. A working anarchic system doesn't mean that people will be happy just like a working dictatorship in North Korea doesn't mean north koreans are happy and basically, I have little faith in anarchic systems getting the most of what I want from society in the long term.
In the age of information, ignorance is a choice.
