    Its like asking "Which came first? The chicken or the iPhone?"
    WTF is an "iPhone" ??
    An interesting question..

    5 have opted for government.

    Man, say I.
    Man has proven that he is not capable of self-government. Then at the advent of the second man, along came "government".

    An iPhone is a cellular phone, mp3 player, internet device created by Apple that is very popular.

    My point in saying that was that the question the OP asked was like saying "Which came first? Man or something that man created?"

    Obviously it was man, man created government, therefore it came after man. Let's skip religion here for a second and be serious, there was no government before man.

    So my analogy was that the iPhone was obviously created by man so why ask such a dumb question about which came first?

    Depends on how one is willing to define govt.

    Some conceivable, if less than useful, definitions could include pack leadership among wolves for example.
    I may be wrong.
