Governments tax, exercise eminent domain, put down riots, enforce laws, and even wage wars in order to please the many at the expense of the few, or to do things which most of the people find abhorrent, yet are necessary for their freedom, prosperity, or even survival.

If governments refused this role, they would have no reason to exist.

And if governments did not do these things, someone else would -- someone who we would quickly come to call the government.
