I suspect that your anarcho-communitarian could be compatible with 
being labeled a libertarian anarchist.

As David Friedman notes more eloquently than I can ("Love Is Not 
Enough" in Pournelle's The Survival of Freedom), if you want 
something I have, you can obtain it by love (I care for you or your 
goals), trade, or force.

A minarchist (small-government libertarian) cedes the necessity of 
government but wants it (i.e., the threat or use of force) kept to an 
irreducible minimum. A libertarian anarchist rejects the initiation 
of force or fraud altogether.

An anarcho-capitalist libertarian (AnCap) says love is fine where it 
works, but trade works more often, so let's focus on that.

How would you describe anarcho-communitarian?
