AnCap is slightly more realistic but they're both impossible, at least for extended periods of time.

Neither one, if you mean anarchy. Then you have the law of the jungle.

Anarchism is capitalism. Anachro communism isn't possible except in small groups

Completely contradictory to the history of the anarchist movement, both on theoretical level and in anarchist revolutions and societies.

On a base level, with or without "anarcho-," capitalism is more conducive to how humans are, while communism wants to make them "better" so capitalism has far more chance of surviving in a power vacuum than the stateless communist endpoint theorised by Marx

There’s been multiple examples of societies similar to anarcho communism, some even existing today like the Zapatista community, nothing even resembling ancapistan. The closest I can think of is Liberland but it has a population of zero people there.

This is true. I'm particularly intrigued by Anarchist Ukraine. Most of these society's can only exist as small communes, like Slab City. The Spanish Civil War created some AnSyn and AnCom communities as well, but it's hard to say if they could ever amount to anything as they were crushed in the conflict.

Well living production and literacy rates were all raising at the time during the Spanish Civil war, as well as industrialization despite Spain historically being largely agricultural. So I would say yes they could amount to something but we should not limit ourselves to these isolated communes, even though they were quite large in population.

That's why we need Marxism. It gives us a scientific approach to get there.
