Yes, no human society could exist for long without government. You can quote me on that--please do
Man cannot exist without politics, but government is an optional tool of society to bind people politically. Unless you would argue that a clan/tribal system is a form of government? If it is then we have no argument. For me, a government necessarily implies a bureaucracy of some sort while a clan/tribe system is governed by kinship bonds and property rights.
The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.
