I respectfully disagree; it's people (including those in government) who are the problem. 'Government' is just a label. Governments and other (often convenient) labels are two things that many people have come to use as crutches.
The way I see it, any political system we as humans have (including individual self-governance) will not work out in the long run-- we're just too varied in our motives and worldviews for that to ever happen in my opinion.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that the 'problems' we have, are nothing more than extensions of our nature.
