They've been telling us how it's going to be... wait a second! were supposed to be doing that!
The government is us; we are the government, you and I -- Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States.

The government is an entity inside a nation (or in the case of federations, a lesser being) that is tasked for running said entity. In forms such as democracy, the government is chosen by the people, while other forms can hold more tyrannical leanings, in which a small amount of the population runs the nation.
" let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us " - Franklin Delano Roosevelt, July 9th, 1938, Marietta Ohio

Although the government does many things that are unnecessary and only work towards the inconvenience of the general population, I can assure you, society would not function without it.
You people may despise the government and taxes, but you must realize that roads, hospitals, police, etc. don't come out of nowhere. What? You expect other people to do all these things for you, without you making any kind of contribution?

government is like a condom in that it allows for inflation, halts production, destroys subsequent generations, protects a bunch of pricks, and provides its constituents with a sense of security while they are actually being screwed.
... too many to list.

oh yea, government.
