We "need" governments because some people can't govern themselves. They can't think independently or act upon thoughts independently. They have no ideas with which to conduct themselves rightly, so some people go about making disturbances and fucking shit up in general. If you are in understanding of how to abide by law and standards, then you are like a shadow to the government. Barely noticeable to the legal system's wicked eye and how it perpetually gets people destroyed every day through corruption.
If you like being a follower, then go along with whatever your leaders tell you. But, if you like to lead, then figure the opposite of what makes a follower and redesign your ass to comply with it.
