"Reality forces people to take jobs. Having a roof over your head and food to eat requires money. People are "forced" to get whatever job they can get."
Who do the members of the Dani tribe in Papua New Guinea work for? What about the Kawahiva of the Amazon basin? The Inuits?
The fact is that our species was around for several hundred thousand years before the emergence of wage labor, and seemed to thrive. All the bullshit you're mentioning is nothing more than the trappings of a modern society. But no one can or should force you to participate in modern society. But if you want to, you better be willing to take the actions necessary to do so.
Survival today is different than it was for our ancestors only in that you can get far more for far less effort. Yet people like you are still bitching that it's not enough and it's too much work.
"The purpose of a country is the collective welfare of its citizens (e.g., national defense, of which I'm sure you approve)."
I believe that the purpose of government is to protect the freedom of the individual. Be it from an external enemy, such as Al Qaeda, or an internal enemy, such as other Americans who would limit individual freedom in order to achieve their own desired political end state.
"You exhibit an authoritarian point of view."
Not at all. I'd have as much problem with the government forcing people to work for a specific employer under specific as I would with the government forcing business to hire people under specific conditions.
"Businesses are dictatorships."
Incorrect. Any "power" held by a business was freely granted by stakeholders, And one has to choose to be a stakeholder.
"But what is the alternative to "democracy", or "constitutional republic" if you prefer (they, are, in real-world reality the same)"
They are not even remotely the same. In a democracy, 50.1% of the population can vote to do whatever they want to the remainder, and it's a perfectly legal, perfectly democratic outcome. The same thing could occur within a constitutional republic I suppose, but the purpose of a constitution is generally to protect people from the democratic process.
