    Default Where does government derive its authority from?

    I'm trying to understand the concept of government. Some say government obtains its power and legitimacy from the people, but that would defeat the purpose. Government is supposed to keep society in check, and if society can run the government..well, who watches the watchers?

    This really isn't a good debate idea as much as it is a question.
