Really? Maybe you should try living in a place without one for a month
or two.  You might find it's quite a relief to get back to a place with
politicians, bureaucrats, the rule of law, taxation, infrastructure,
health systems, public education systems, a functioning economy, etc.

Family members and friends who have worked in places like Somalia and
Kandahar tell me that government has to be extremely bad before it's
better than no government.  (Which is not to say that governments can't
be improved.)
