In simplest terms, the government's role is the protection of individual rights, and no more.

In particular, the government should provide a few services to achieve this gaol, including courts to settle disputes based on a system of Objective law, police to enforce the law and protect the citizens from each other, and a military to protect citizens from foreigns powers.
