Would anarchy ever work successfully if implemented?

Anarchy is great! ...unfortunately it would soon be replaced by a more oppressive form of government than was in place before, like a dictator coming to power. So...I don't think it would ever work. :(

No it would never "work", even for a second. Anarchy could only last for a short violent term before entities started to restore order.

A democrat said yes to anarchy?! Wow the Democratic Party is the furthest from anarchy. It is for big government.

I'd only be in favor of anarchy if I had a lot of weapons and a small army.

Governments formed because anarchy doesn't work.

No, governments formed because there have always been people addicted to power.

How do you implement anarchy? Anarchy is like a wild animal, if its not allowed to be free it's not wild anymore. The same is true for anarchy. If you try to "implement" or control anarchy, it isn't anarchy.

People want to be free AND safe. You can't have the safety and security in anarchy like you do in our society. It's impossible as there are no standards in Anarchy. IMO

Anarchy is barbarism where the strong take from the weak, that is the antithesis of freedom

Thats true. Anarchy can also be a society without rules. Fend for yourself, defend yourself. Some may think total lawlessness is freedom.

It would require personal responsibility - and too many people lack that quality

People would take advantage of it. Jus like communism it sounds great on paper by if actually put in place you get a country like Somalia with basically no government.

IF it's in a very small state and IF everyone's willing to join the society. But I think because of human nature some form of government will eventually reform.
