Lots of people hold the delusional idea in their mind the government is somehow legitimate. They see the pillars and statues of government buildings and think it’s some sort of physical entity with all sorts of “powers” unto itself.
In reality, the government is hardly different than a bunch of children playing dress up.
Putting on a cop uniform doesn’t give you the power to violate some strangers rights anymore than putting on a vampire costume gives you eternal life and fangs.
Government as a whole is nothing more than a collection of serial rights violators who believe themselves to have some super-human right to go around telling people what to do and threatening them if they don’t comply.
