that govt hasn't stepped outside the philosophical boundaries of governance laid down by Enlightenment thinkers.

I am discussing natural law and natural rights.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men..."

According to natural law theory, which is the basis of the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights, the only valid role of government is to actively protect our natural rights.

You desire to advocate for and defend anarchy, which is a completely different topic... :)
