How does the doctrine(s) of anarchism address the following issue?

If there's no government, no army, no central police, who will stop local charismatic leaders from taking over and creating their own (dictatorship) government?

We observe that dozens of times wherever the central government collapsed or was ineffective: Sicily (famous Mafia), Somalia, Islamic State, warlords in Congo and West Africa, etc.

I'm not asking about speculations — how that could work — but how the ideologues of anarchism address that issue in their political doctrine(s).
