Government is force applied to the individual to compel obedience according to tthe direction of the rulers of the government. The benefits it gives are at the expense of some and are always the lowest common denominator in how things will be handled because there can be no finesse or subtlety where brute force is the key to the whole operation.
The Mafia is basically a government too, but one that acts at odds to the society at large.
Governments operate no differently, just they usually have a veneer of benefit to the society at large and people look to them as if they were some sort of demigod. It's a violation of the First Commandment, frankly.
And don't kid yourself; the Left always knew that. Read Rouseau's The Social Contract. He speaks about the Collective Will as the new god and the State as the new Church.
"It is curious that people tend to regard government as a quasi-divine, selfless, Santa Claus organization. Government was constructed neither for ability nor for the exercise of loving care; government was built for the use of force and for necessarily demagogic appeals for votes.
If individuals do not know their own interests in many cases, they are free to turn to private experts for guidance. It is absurd to say that they will be served better by a coercive, demagogic apparatus.â€
- Murray Rothbard, "Power and Marketâ€
