Legitimate Argument Against Anarchism In The USA

Friend:
The reason Anarchism would never work in the USA is because American's are nothing more than children who, if they didn't have some form of supervision at all times, a majority of them would die.
Me:
In other words, American's are too stupid to take care of themselves...
Friend:
Pretty much.
Me:
OK, I can't really argue against that point.
Friend:
The US Government creates a self-fulfilling prophecy for itself. "You need us because we made you so dumb, and we made you so dependent, if we were no longer here you wouldn't know how to survive. We make you need us."
Me:
Perhaps the first step then would be...
Friend:
The first step would be mass organization, mass re-education and a decentralized leadership.
Me:
Uh...
Friend:
We still are dealing with a society of, as NoFX would say "adult infants" or "mental midgets" they'll need to be raised up... intellectually.
Me:
...but this system you talk about would only have to be created once the State is dissolved. People will not leave the "comfort" of the State willingly.
Friend:
Well this system I talk about would effectively dissolve the State. Once people stop believing in the illusion, the illusion no longer has power over them.
Me:
You mean the illusion of the necessity of the State?
Friend:
The problem remains that American's remain insanely stupid. It would take decades to get enough people in the mindset that is needed to effectively dissolve the illusion of the State.
Me:
I've really got to think about this.
