I would add to:
Laws are made by the creator - they are self-evident. Things like do not harm and do not steal are self-evident. If you give your word - keep it - or don't give it - another self-evident one.
If we all followed THESE laws the need for "government" would surely dissipate into obsolescence no? What I have found since laying them down in concrete is that the average man/woman on the street is not capable of following them.
Hence we can't self govern. (We can't govern ourselves.) So in a poetically horrific way our tyranny is justified. It's our neglect of our duties defending liberty come home to roost.
