I think that government arises, as a memeset, from the interaction of memes
at a smaller-group level. I think that some form of centralised governmenr
is a more or less necessary emergent of memetic processing between
individuals, families, tribes, counties...

I think that anarchy will necessarily (because of the very nature of memes)
give rise to centralised bodies of government.
