The "law of the jungle" is that the strong prosper and survive, while the weak suffer and die.

The government does not exist to enforce the law of the jungle. The law of the jungle does not need the government to enforce it. The law of the jungle is by its nature, self-enforcing.

The government exists to moderate the law of the jungle, to ease the suffering of the weak at the hands of the strong, to rein in the strong from taking everything they want from anybody they want.

The right-wing would not agree. To them, the government, if it has any legitimate function at all, is to intensify the law of the jungle, to codify and strengthen its might-makes-right result.
