Actually, when you think about it: No, the government does not have a right to self-preservation because its sole purpose is meant to facilitate a
good and prosperous society for the people of the nation. Ideally that applies to all nations, but people being people....eh. Well, it's only up
from here, right?
Government is not a living, breathing being and even if it were, it cannot work against the good of the people in preservation of itself. It is, as
one will hear often in American history classes, meant to be of, for, and by the people. What happens to citizens who work against the good of others
around them, in pursuit of only their well-being at the detriment of rest?
