Government doesn't need your consent to rule you

Its power comes from naked brute force.
It's rules you. It GOVERNS you. Regardless of your consent.

Government is a distinct entity that has achieved rule making/military dominance over society and can grant itself the power to harm with legal impunity.

You don't give it power to harm you...it grants itself the power to harm you as it pleases.
