According to evolutionary theory, government originates from a family or clan-bound structure, which can explain the formation of the world’s first political structures.
Here we shall have a brief look into the origins of government and the power mankind holds as its masters.
These earliest and very loosely formed governments were the result of a shift from hunter-gatherer societies to more settled agricultural societies.
As families joined to form clans and clans joined to form villages, the need for leaders and a central organizational structure developed.
These leaders helped determine how to address still unfamiliar issues, such as water rights for crop irrigation and the distribution of other resources.
They also provided an increased sense of safety and security for the society.
The larger the society the less likely they were to be attacked by other clans kingdoms and nations.
In many early societies, these first states developed monarchies, with rule based on membership in a ruling family with the soul purpose of protecting the fundamental rights of men and woman, the living children of God.”
In modern times, some governments continue to be led by a succession of members from the same family.
The force theory” is the idea that government originates from taking control of the state by force and is often found in a dictatorship—a type of government characterized by one-person or one-party an authoritarian rule.
Historically, this has been achieved in some cases through forcible invasion or occupation when a more dominant people or state takes control of the political system of a less powerful people or state, imposing its governmental system on that group.
New governments can also be formed by force during revolutions coups and uprisings within a country.
A coup is the overthrow of an established government, and the resulting leader or dictator is most often a military figure.
An example of the force theory occurred in Cuba in 1959, when revolutionary Fidel Castro and a small force of guerrilla soldiers defeated the national army and took control of the government.
In some cases, governments created by force take on some characteristics of a monarchy, with government power handed down within the dictator’s family.
With the divine right theory” government originates with ordained Authority, power vested in an individual by God or gods and the law of God.
Generally, monarchs lead governments of this type.
This theory was followed in ancient times, including by the ancient Egyptians and Maya.
The idea of divine right experienced a resurgence in western Europe in the 16th to the 18th centuries, when King James I of England, several French monarchs, and other rulers asserted that their authority came directly from God—and thus could not be challenged.
However this divine right is only ordained by God while following Gods law (Natural law) many politicians monarchies and rulers like to forget or ignore these things today.
Russian czars, such as Peter the Great, believed their autocratic rule was God-given, and they used their power to gain territory, wage war, and impose taxation on their subjects.
The social contract theory” of government was the result of centuries of frustration with the unchecked power of monarchs.
Under this theory, government is a kind of contract in which those in power have responsibility toward those they govern and the governed respect the power of the governing individuals.
There are various versions of the social contract theory, ranging from an emphasis on maintaining a peaceful social order to a focus on using individual free will to determine what is best for the public good, or that which benefits all people in a society.
Although the social contract theory has numerous variations, at its core is the idea that government is an agreement between those who govern and those who are governed. (Consent of the governed)
The founders of the United States drew heavily on social contract theory in the construction of both the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution.
In doing so, they formed a democracy, which literally means “rule by the people.”
So Why do governments exist?
One major reason is that they create rules. But what rules are necessary or desirable?
That is open to question, and different types of governments have certainly created a wide variety of rules.
GOVERNMENTs almost certainly originated with the need to protect people from conflicts and to provide law and order to protect the fundamental unalienable rights of mankind.
So Why have conflicts among people happened throughout history?
Many people, both famous and ordinary, have tried to answer that question.
Perhaps human nature dictates selfishness, and people inevitably will come to blows over who gets what property power or privilege.
Historically, all governments have, in some sense, been developed from the patriarchal, as all society has been developed from the family.
Even those governments, like the ancient Roman, Greek ,English and the modern feudal, which seem to be founded on landed property, may be traced back to a patriarchal origin.
Infact Government is both a fact and a right of the people.
Its origin as a fact, is simply a question of history;
Its origin as a right or authority to govern, is a question of ethics and fundamental rights as collective of free men and women .
Whether a certain territory and its population are a sovereign state or nation or not is determined by its people not–whether the actual ruler of a country is its rightful ruler by right or Devine allocations.
Political writers, not carefully distinguishing between the fact and the right of a people to Autonomy self governance by self determination have indeed invented various theories as to the origin of government over the history of mankind.
One thing is sure
Governments originate in the right of the father to govern his child.
It originates in convention, and is a social construct.
It originates in the people, who, collectively are sovereign.
It originated From God through the people;–
From God through the natural law.
Magna carta shows that the people hold the true power of government.
Uprisings like The magna Carta arise due to unlawful governance and intrusion into the daily lives and prosperity of free men and woman.
Such uprisings have happened many times throughout history when the people realise they have been trespassed against.
Just as it did with Magna Carta.
It was because of the actions of a free people, free individuals surrounding Magna Carta that a parliament of the people for the people emerged.
The people have a habit of forgetting who they are and the power they hold.
We the people are really the barrons and lords
We the people created government therefore we are its master’s, after all we are all created as equals each sovereign in our own right with our own individual autonomy.
Its the people who place kings leaders and individual into positions of power over the collective ,always has been and always will be.
Until the return of the king of kings ,the creator of all things known to mankind returns this will always be the case.
It is clear from history that when any form of Governance becomes detrimental to the fundamental unalienable rights of a free people, it is the right of that free people to abolish any form of Governance that becomes detrimental to those rights of that free people to form a new system that protects our fundamental rights as men and women.
The Authorities that be know this to well ,thus why the Authority spends much time keeping us divided ,a valuable leason learned by actions from the past.
Unfortunately the people have forgotten our history and the power we hold when united as one.
The people united in the days of Magna Carta
And put the fear of God in the king forcing change and were successful .
The origins of government begun with a united free majority people acting in unison with eachother as one people to form a body politic to protect Eachother from tyrants and to protect our Fundamental Unalienable rights under God as living breathing man and woman of flesh and blood.
Our failures to protect these systems from tyranny greed and corruption at all levels is not the fault of the tyrants but ourselves.
