If government equals mutual trust, then how do you explain WWI, WWII, Stalin's mass killings, Khmer Rouge, etc.

All of these events were initiated by leaders of governments, because government allows crazy individuals the power to harness huge economic resources.

If you can explain to me how giving vast economic resources to people who did nothing to create these resources, then I will agree that government is good. However, I doubt many people believe that handing power over to people whose only goal is to wield it is a wise decision.

Shrink government, allow those who create wealth to keep it (since they are obviously good at making investment decisions) and appeal to people's sense of charity to help their fellow man.
