Using Chimpanzees as an argument for Govt. is just funny. By that logic, the physically strongest in our society should be our leaders and everyone else should be subservient to them.
The Milgram experiment on obedience to authority figures was a series of notable social psychology experiments conducted by Yale University psychologist Stanley Milgram, which measured the willingness of study participants to obey an authority figure who instructed them to perform acts that conflicted with their personal conscience.
]Dr. Thomas Blass of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County performed a meta-analysis on the results of repeated performances of the experiment. He found that the percentage of participants who are prepared to inflict fatal voltages remains remarkably constant, 61–66 percent, regardless of time or place.
There is a little-known coda to the Milgram Experiment, reported by Philip Zimbardo: none of the participants who refused to administer the final shocks insisted that the experiment itself be terminated, nor left the room to check the health of the victim without requesting permission to leave, as per Milgram's notes and recollections, when Zimbardo asked him about that point.
No, they started off as a business venture to make money and compete with the biggest mob (US Govt)
we should thus all support the biggest gang (US Govt)?

Yeah but, organized crime could form, do whatever it wants...steal peoples land, force women into sexual slavery, extort people to kill any sort of free market. Government is just as evil as humans, without government our evil would oppress others in different forms.
