Picoblog Question – 2015 – Post #58

What is government for?

My two cents, but please share yours:

Each individual is entitled to own and control their life, their freedom, and the fruits of their labors (their property). However, the bad folks out there, foreign and domestic, motivated by need, greed, or ego, wish to steal it all away. If the individual spends time guarding their life, liberty, and property, they won’t have much time left for pursuing happiness. This is where government comes in. It’s purpose is to protect individuals from foreign and domestic aggressors, and this is why we have a military and a police force.
