Besides your use of

Besides your use of emotionally charged words, I don't see where your analysis differs substantially from mine. You use morally loaded terms of derision for government, but on your analysis it emerged as the least costly means of defensive social order. Once it was established and obtained legitimacy, good people joined it in droves, just as good people do today join the police or the army, along with the bad apples. If you can create an alternative that can defend you from the government gangs, go for it. You can't, so you complain.
