: You also need a Government to have *money* Since all money is dependant on affixation by authority, or it becomes worthless...
Unless it is representative of, or actually made of (!), something of consistent exchangeable value. Then its not so reliant upon government authority - hence goverments dont like gold standards, or any such tying of money to actual exchangeable value.
