Indeed, I don't see how anarchy/ libertarianism/ whatever can come about as long as humans have, in the absence of a government-imposed larger society, a seemingly innate tendency to form tribes. A non-tribal/gang society demands that you forswear vengence against someone who killed your parent/ sibling/ child/ spouse/ best friend, if your loved one was in the wrong and the stranger was in the right.
