Governments are important because why?

Governments have many functions, but most importantly:

- they organize defense of a country: we are stronger together than separately!
- they provide (or at least should!) things that everyone needs but noone has an incentive to do on their own: infrastructure, care of elderly, general health care (it's actually cheaper for the whole society to be in a social care program than to deal with the lack of it!)
