No one is responsible for anything because they are all servants of an unseen, undetectable, all-knowing, all-powerful entity we call The State. It is a pure fiction.
That is the fundamental difference between an anarcho-capitalist society and a government. Individuals are responsible for their actions. There are no magical super-conscious entities that they can blame for their misdeeds. And that is the reason why a group of people who make agreements to offer protection under specific terms will not later go around tyrannizing everyone after they have accumulated large amounts of weaponry. There simply will not be anyone else to bear the burden of blame for their actions.
Statism’s evil lies in that it gives people an excuse to behave badly by transferring moral responsibility onto a fictional being that isn’t real. Anarchism is the rejection of that myth and as a consequence it places moral culpability where it belongs, the individual.
