“The government is just the armed gang you’re afraid would take over in the absence of government”

“The government is just the armed gang that you’re afraid would take over in the absence of government” (shown on an image) was posted on Twitter by author Larken Rose on March 3, 2019. That is, the purported purpose of government might be to protect one from an armed gang, but government itself is an armed gang.
