Is it possibl e to live without government? Why do governments exist all over the world when people all over the world are so critical of government?
These are old political questi ons that were first asked when people began thinking about life in organized so cieties. Questions about the need for government and the legitimate purposes of government are continually being asked because the answers reflect contemporary thinking about basic human values, including freedom, order, individualism, equality, economic prosperity, national security, morality and ethics and justice.
These values are central to government and politics in all countries although the values attached to them and their relative importance varies a great deal. Given the almost universal cri ticism of government, and a strong tradition of anti-government rh etoric in the United States, it is worth wondering why government?

In American politics, debates are often framed as freedom versus order because the relationship between individual freedom and government power is considered a zero-sum relationship: The power problem illustrates this relationship.
The challenge is to give government enough power so that it can addre ss or solve the problem s that people want government to solve, such as providing public safety and national security and economic prosperity, while also limiting government power so that it can be held accountable by the people.
Too little power can be a problem because weak governments or failed states can provide havens for criminals or terro rists. Too much power can be a problem because strong governments can threaten individual rights.What kind of statistics can help evaluate relative size and allow for a better comparison?
