In reply to comment: Farmer Joe milks his cow. (see in situ)

You're stating the obvious

Of course gov't can be used as a tool of aggression. But without gov't, farmer Joe's wife and kids would have no recourse if someone decided to kill Joe and steal his herd. It's not possible that you cannot understand why the founders instituted a gov't to "secure" their rights. It's as simple as 1+1=2. So why do you always focus on the negative aspects of gov't? Whether that gov't takes the form of an indigenous tribe or a Constitutional Republic, it's the best we can do in an imperfect world. There are no examples of anarchical societies that have successfully secured the rights of its members. With the exeception of one right, the right to disagree about everything.
