    So you cannot be freely murdered. If there is no government, there is no law, and with no law, then in the words of Thomas Hobbes, life is "poor, nasty, brutish and short".

    The other key reason is to provide for common defence against countries that are better organised than you and put together an army. How is your country going to defend itself if it doesn't get organised too?

    Because anarchy would mean only the physically strongest and/or best armed survive.

    I know they teach you about that in School.

    The best answer I can give you is to keep the united states from becoming unorganized, to make laws, and to control the united states of america.

      What about other countries? They have governments too. Generally better ones.
