Its not so much government is evil its more the fact that the people who compose government of any form are no different than anyone else. This is true for a monarchy, dictator, or democratically elected officials. The truth is that the people in government are no more evil than anyone else in the world except for one difference. The evil that lies in every person is always held in check by the inalienable rights of others such as a person who has no moral restriction to steal may be held in check when the person he seeks to steel from will object. This objection might cause him to think twice about the morality of his actions and provide an extra incentive to not steal. Simply put, the rights of other people keep our behaviors in check since someone's right to their property keeps us from stealing it but government has no check since it can act against our will even though it knows we object to it hence the reason why government is involuntary force in our lives. The people who have power may be held in check by their own moral conscience that restrains them against abusing their power but how much can we trust their conscience when we know that they are no different and just as evil as anyone else. This kind of enviroment where they can act on all impulses with no check invites them to act on every aspect of their nature which can be both good and evil. This have been the history of government from the beginning. No force has caused more suffering on this earth than government itself and it is because a deadly cocktail has been mixed together of human nature and the ability of the people in government to remove any ability of other human beings who are not in government to resist them. They are now like the person who may not have the moral restraint to keep from stealing but always had others who could object to the theft therefore keeping his behavior in check. The only difference is that those they want to steal from can not object to that theft which makes government a breeding ground for evil in our society.
