    It never was "every man for himself". It was always families and extended families and friends who banded together for mutual benefit. Loners didn't succeed or survive. team effort is a requirement for success. Out of that social structure, authority through strength, experience, intelligence, wisdom and charisma was a natural consequence. Larger groups of families with capable leaders usually did better than smaller groups, and you can extend that right out to the formation of larger and larger social structures.

    Government formation is the process in a parliamentary system of selecting a prime minister and cabinet members. If no party controls a majority of seats, it can also involve deciding which parties will be part of a coalition government.

    It has never been every man for himself. Humans saw the advantage of living among one another from the beginning and over time, laws were created to regulate how they would interact with one another.

    A man who was exceedingly brutal began to control a large territory that  contained resources people needed, like food or water. Then he hired people to help him guard his territory in exchange for food, water, and women. Then he started making up rules that people in his territory had to follow if they wanted food or water.
