Well, what do you expect? "We the people" created a government and the government thinks it creates the people. That is what governments do.
You don't have to have a government, you know. There have been several cultures with no central government. They were prosperous, peaceful, and unconquerable until "we the people" decided to create a central government.
Rome conquered most of the known world, but when they tried to invade Germany the tribes wiped out a third of the army in one battle.
The American colonies whipped England, the most powerful country in the world.
The Hebrew history known as Judges had no king and they were unconquerable until they decided to appoint one.
You are so right,thank god we have people around like you
