An arbitrator is a ruler?

An arbitrator is a ruler? What about the people that revise software licensing agreements? What about enforcers and modifiers of contracts?

The point is that if the government is of delegated and limited powers then it is fulfilling a contractual function only. The difference being that government "runs with the land" so that you must leave its jurisdiction in order to breach or rescind the contract.

I am in no way saying that government is not coercive, only that you risk defining "rulers" into non-existence by applying it too broadly.
