Is the government accountable? We seek to blame or hold our government accountable for certain events. Without a government, who could we blame when things go wrong? The government is under the people so we have to know what the government is doing and award to award/punish it.

What does the government provide? Order, and tranquility. The government solves disputes (political and civil) that we couldn't on our own
