I agree with the second half of your statement

however, I don't think it's necessary for Man to be morally perfect to do without rulers.

If Man is thought to be so immoral, what makes anyone think that it's a good idea to put some of them in charge of everyone else?

In my experience, most people are pretty cordial when they have equal statuses (with respect to authority), but as soon as one thinks he/she has authority over others, cordiality goes down the drain.

Ever had a coworker promoted to a management position?

At least when folks are on an equal footing, one can just ignore the jerks.
