It would not be fair to have laws that only fit that person's needs and if that person keeps on making those types of laws then they might take all of the power. Without a government then that state or country might turn into a form it a dictatorship. If there was a government then everything will be in order and everyone, even the leader, will have to follow the rule of law. This would be fair because everyone would not be fighting over want they want. It would be hard without a government, there would be unneeded responsibilities, right, and laws.
