Government (n.) A social structure that regulates trade and punishment.

Corporate "free market" interests hate government because it stops them from reaching their optimal market condition. Socialists like large government because it eliminates space for personal initiative. An optimal government is probably one that enforces the rule of law without discrimination, which upholds the basic freedom of all to communicate, trade, and move without hindrance, and which guarantees a level playing field in commerce, education, health, politics, and justice.
