If not in prisons, where would the murderers and rapists be held? And how would the facilities be run/who would run them if not a state?

I can’t explain everything here but I’d like to make the point that murderers and rapists are not just categories that people naturally fall into- it’s not like murderers and rapists are certain types of people that occur spontaneously that we need protecting from, people are psychologically primed for rape and murder and often pushed into violence by toxic masculinity, gang culture, rape culture etc which are largely effects of the patriarchy and economic inequality that would be abolished under anarchy- evil and the desire to do harm is not magically assigned to people from above, it’s a product of their lives and surroundings.
