I am not American and govt restricts freedom.
I am not American and govt does NOT restrict freedom.
both. the balance depends on the specific government that you're referring to.Do governments restrict freedom or provide it?
also, the way the question is worded is too generic. for examples, corporations have lost the freedom to dump chemicals into rivers that caused them to catch on fire. had the population lost freedom of the press, that would be something else entirely. both would be a loss of freedom; one is completely necessary and benefits all of us.
No, government is not about people coming together. When the government decided you were under their authority when you were born did you come together with those in government to make that decision? No, they decided it for you and ever since that day you have been under their command. Does the government have any real idea how many people consent to their governance or not? How many people were offered a choice to live in this land and not consent to be governed? That would be grand total of zero, yes? If someone comes to live in this land they MUST consent to the governing organization and follow their command thereafter or face fines, imprisonment, forced labor, or even death. Hell, in this country you're forced into labor as a condition for doing certain things like making a living or owning a home or if you want to open a business. In short, no one has a choice in the matter, so there is no "coming together of people". Your whole line of reasoning is based on a falsehood.Our government is a coming together of people. There are 350,000,000 US citizens, give or take. There are, what, less than 10,000,000 government employees? Even less if you only count the leaders. At any point, any day of the week, any time of day, should the vast majority of people no longer consent, they can, and there is nothing anyone can do about it.
You have no idea if that claim of yours is true or not.Your problem is, the vast, over whelming majority of people, while maybe not HAPPY with the way things currently are, are still fine with the government they've got.

That is the very first line, of the very first link you provided. Nature does not recognize ethics. Nature does not adhere to legality, beyond the basic laws of physics. Nature DOES have social constructs, by which I mean, many species of animals form packs, instinctively.
