This may seem obvious to some but there is no such "thing" as government. There are only people. I call the voluntary peaceful interactions between people "society" and the violent, coercive ones "government". But these are only metaphors. On a related note, there is no such "thing" as the economy. It is only a metaphor for the sum total of all of the exchanges of goods and services that go on every day.
