If everyone has one vote, there is a government by definition.
While there may not be personal property, there is property that some
people are allowed to use more than others - by law, or just the fact that
they do use it more. Some people might see this allocation as unfair.
This leads directly to politicians, who make a living out of manipulating
opinion. (Not being able to lie just makes it harder.)
