Don't take offense at the five dollar words, but you're practically quoting Thomas Hobbes, English philosopher who lived from 1588-1679. Hobbes believed the natural state of man was warlike, and governments arose as social contracts to keep us from killing each other. Without central government, people will lapse back into a state of war, where, in his words:
"there is no place for Industry; because the fruit thereof is uncertain; and consequently no Culture of the Earth; no Navigation, nor use of the commodities that may be imported by Sea; no commodious Building; no Instruments of moving, and removing such things as require much force; no Knowledge of the face of the Earth; no account of Time; no Arts; no Letters; no Society; and which is worst of all, continuall feare, and danger of violent death; And the life of man, solitary, poore, nasty, brutish, and short." (Leviathan, Book I, ch. 13).
Hobbes works his way into foreign policy a lot more than you might think. Kosovo, Rwanda, and Somalia are good examples. Of course, Hobbes would've been a BIG wrestling fan today.
