Ancient cities needed organized government because they can't just lay around like pigs. If they were like pigs they wouldn't care if somebody from another place attack and/or kill people. Someone needed to organize things. They organized food for armies, people to build city walls, they trained armies and gave them weapons, clothing, and shelter.
