I think its possible to live a life without a government.
there are good things about it such as equality. However the rich would try to prevent it.
We would be able to survive without a government however people would need to be more social and aware of things around us. we would need a new job for things the government does such as trading with other locations. war would be far more rare due to governments fighting for more wealth because war has massive rewards for good people dying. If we did not have a government then we would not need to worry about people like Donald trump but we would still need police in cities to keep the peace. people would need to make a group vote as to what we would want done instead of 1 person making all the big changes. If there is no government then it means that the armies that protect us would need there highest rank in the military to make the choices of battle strategy and negotiating but they would have to be trusted to not take bribes for doing things such as lowering defenses to attack or something like that.

Con

Without government, countries would have no order. If there was not sense of leadership, there would be no peace and equality. The rich would take control, and then that is a form of leading. The rich are in control of a certain part of the country or the country. Government is important for the average citizen because they should have someone or something to look up to.

Of course anarchy is an option, that is indisputable.
But that doesn't make it beneficial.
A better debate would be whether no government would be beneficial.
I would debate you on that.
