I was listening to Clint Eastwood by Gorillaz and had a minor epihpany at the following line:

I brought all this So you can survive when law is lawless

Humans never evolved from large societies, and while there are many large societies today that work, it reqiures them to take into account nature.
For instance, in Western culture, we try everything we can to ensure courts aren't biased. Biased courts are the antithesis to proper justice, but bias is common in nature.
(See what happens when the law system breaks down in countries in revolution.)

We inherently have the ability to be evil, and good. Without that ability, we would have never survived. Imagine an early human not being able to steal food from a beehive,
because of a fear of hurting their species. In times of hunger, we did what we had to do to survive. Other tribes would be killed to ensure another tribes survival. At the same time,
knowledge would be spread between humans to help others, and I'm sure random stranger encounters would go a lot better if it wasn't an immediate fight. Travel was obviously common,
and if early humans were too afraid of conflict with othres, I don't think it would be as common as it was.

I think natively, there are some governmental systems that can and cannot work. If you don't attempt to treat humans as they are, a force of nature, and try to treat them as anything else
(remember, we did not evolve as ants or bees did, in a colony system), your system will be doomed to fail. We have the ability to act on good and bad if the need comes. In times of revolution
if things get too chaotic, humans will act on that ability. Factions will form. Struggles for power and resources will happen. Nature will return, and the system you thought would be created
will once again vanish. You've put yourself and your lineage at risk because you wanted to create a system that went against nature.

There is no escape, this is what our species is. It doesn't matter how much you hate that, if you don't treat it with respect (and acknowledge the existence of it), you become a cause of suffering.

"Now I ask you: what can be expected of man since he is a being endowed with strange qualities? Shower upon him every earthly blessing, drown him in a sea of happiness, so that nothing but bubbles of bliss can be seen on the surface; give him economic prosperity, such that he should have nothing else to do but sleep, eat cakes and busy himself with the continuation of his species, and even then out of sheer ingratitude, sheer spite, man would play you some nasty trick. He would even risk his cakes and would deliberately desire the most fatal rubbish, the most uneconomical absurdity, simply to introduce into all this positive good sense his fatal fantastic element. It is just his fantastic dreams, his vulgar folly that he will desire to retain, simply in order to prove to himself--as though that were so necessary-- that men still are men and not the keys of a piano, which the laws of nature threaten to control so completely that soon one will be able to desire nothing but by the calendar. And that is not all: even if man really were nothing but a piano-key, even if this were proved to him by natural science and mathematics, even then he would not become reasonable, but would purposely do something perverse out of simple ingratitude, simply to gain his point. And if he does not find means he will contrive destruction and chaos, will contrive sufferings of all sorts, only to gain his point!” - Fyodor Dostoevsky
