The theory that says that government evolved from the family structure
According to Evolutionary theory, the government evolved from the family-bond structure. It explains where philosophers and earlier politicians got the idea of the initial political structure. Besides, many scholars argue that the government developed from a family where they join to form a clan where leaders are selected to govern the entire village (Hume, 2020). It is the same way with the government; it creates rules that guide people within its jurisdiction. The clans’ leaders played a vital role in solving issues that arose within the village walls, like farming and distributing resources. Just like the government, these leaders ensured the safety and protection of people in the community.
