Of course. In fact, I'd say it's the traditional definition of the 
anarchist ideal. It's why I tend to label myself an anarchist communitarian.

(For reasons lost in 19th and early 20th century history and 
establishment propaganda, people and the media often use "anarchist" 
synonymously with "bomb-throwing deranged terrorist." Obviously I 
repudiate that.)
