I do not know of any country that has no government, even a tribe will have some form of government, but that's the closest I can come to an example. Wich leads me to my next point, how is it natural for humans to have no government? Every group of more than two will naturally have a leader, in other words a government. Just look at a family, that's a dictatorship
Let's say you go hunting for yourself and your family, no luck means no food. Your neighbour does the same, great luck means to much food. What is the obvious solution?
So in short you are just plain wrong but then again I'm not a cynic and will never be. Being a cynic just means you have lost all hope.
You infer that the logical conclusion is Government is needed because one man had no hunting bounty?
Originally posted by SkurkNilsenThe answer to this is quite simple and dates back to when people started living in groups of more than one.
When a society develops it is natural that everyone works together for the common good, part of that is taking care of all individuals in the group.
If you want to, you can go to societies with no government, and there I think YOU will be hard pressed to work for and share everything with the tribe, in case you don't you won't be a part of that group for long.

Our society assures an equal oppourtunity.
So basically you made my point – it is not a human right it is a mutually agreed upon arrangement between two (or more people) absent another you would not have the “right” to anything you could not procure all on your own. A human right would be something you did not need another person for like say freedom of speech, right to seek happiness or to defend yourself.
