Government tells people what to do and it is necessary because if it didn’t exist, anarchy would take its place and that would be bad. Without government people would not have responsibilities to fulfill, such as taxes. There would be no governing body to outline what is right and wrong. Without government you would not even have basic human rights. Government creates rights through the Constitution and without it no one has the right to anything. Without government simple expectations like clean water and basic currency would not be accessible. There would be war over lack of resources and leaders would not be elected to protect them from attack. So in conclusion government is necessary to enforce laws, and keep people safe.
