"Need" to be governed?

I don't need to be governed by anyone else, but even if I did, since everyone has the right to defend themselves and their property from all violators, that is enough to govern me. 

And the same goes for everyone else in the world. 

People, exercising their rights, are the only government anyone needs, and the only kind of government that can actually work without becoming a bigger problem than that which it claims to be solving.

Obviously, some people have a pathological "need" to govern others, but even in that case they are not under the delusion that they need to be governed, themselves.  Just that everyone else does.

I think we can discount the "needs" of those people as a sickness.
