  •  You're mixing the two arguments. (3+ / 0-)

    Government indeed brings order to society- I think we can all agree on that.  It's why the neanderthals in the tea party want to dismantle it.

    The argument you object to (and I don't disagree) is the Hellenic/Classical notion of man conquering nature- the white temple on the hill top.  In architecture this is the western philosophy.  In the East, most notably Japan, man is seen living in harmony with nature.  This is the concept Frank Lloyd Wright built his life and career on.
