I don't get why you people hate the government

I guess you'd rather go back to the 1800's with your free markets and child labor. The purpose of government is create a better society, because without government everyone would be fighting all the time and there would be no roads or bridges or education unless you were a millionaire. Those who earn the most have a responsibility to give back to the community that helped them get to where they are, and that is one of the other functions of government. If you want to make the world a better place, you need a capable central government that is accountable to voters and has the power to make the world more socially just. Without the government, there would be no social safety me either.
