God showed how he wanted a community of people to live together in the Land in Exodus and Deuteronomy. He gave no government, as we know it. He gave no group of people to make laws or rule over the rest.
He simply gave a set of laws and promised to raise up voluntary judges. The Israelites rejected God’s way and chose a King. Samuel is clear that this was a massive step down.
We are no better. We reject God’s way and chose democratic politics (rotating kings in a permanent kingship). Consequently, we are now reaping the whirlwind.
