Why do we need a government?
Not quite the same question, but when we notice that it doesn't matter whom we elect, we still get the same set of policies (with one or two obvious tweeks to make them look different), it becomes obvious:-
A government is required so that the ruling class can continue to govern whilst maintaining the illusion that it's our elected government and if we don't like what it does, well it's our fault for electing them.
"Humanity wasn't supposed to be a domesticated species, owned by a ruling class ... "
Now that's fighting talk ...
