What would happen if society, especially American society, were to lapse into anarchy?

I know a couple people who believe that the best thing that could happen would be for the United States (and ultimately all countries) would be for the government/s to cease to exist and an anarchy to take its place.
While I have a gut feeling that things wouldn't work out as well as anarchy's supporters imagine in this scenario, I can't articulate why. So, what would happen if the US became an anarchy? (Authoritative and scholarly sources would be great.)
