"What do we do about the drug problem? Answer: druggies could be prohibited from driving on private roads and entering private neighborhoods and schools.
"What do we do about the porn problem? Answer: porn producers and consumers could be prohibited from driving on private roads and entering private neighborhoods and schools.
"What do we do about the problem of religious fanatics that won’t let us smoke dope? Answer: anti-drug fanatics could be prohibited from driving on private roads and entering private neighborhoods and schools.

But, in ancapistan, every road in neighborhood will be private, so "druggies," pornographers, and religious fanatics will be prohibited from going anywhere. Which, of course, will be a death sentence for them.

"Everyone" will be safe, secure, and prosperous, except if the ancaps don't like you. (Note that for Hoppe, the people who wouldn't be allowed to drive on private roads would include anyone advocating democracy or wealth redistribution.)
