    Should government exist... at all?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I'd say yes.

    The best government should be the law. Without rules there is no game.

    Given enough time we may shed the need for government but considering most of our current issues are problems the Romans also faced at one time or another, I suspect it'll be a very long time indeed.

    What problems would you say are only able to be solved by government?

    I don't think that it's unable to be solved, so much as incredibly unlikely without some form of minimal governing body. Unified effort is very hard without representatives of groups in a land of over 300 million or even 7 billion if you meant globally.
