Force

If physical force is to be barred from social relationships, men need an institution charged with the task of protecting their rights under an objective code of rules. This is the task of a government - of a proper government - its basic task, its only moral justification and the reason why men do need a government. A government is the means of placing the retaliatory use of physical force under objective control - i.e., under objectively defined laws.
Ayn Rand
Do you think she wrote this one morning after her lover had pulled her hair and drove her head into the pillow as...no, I don't think so either.
