Alien Confused By The Concept Of 'Government'

What do you think an alien would think if one were to visit earth? If it were to find out about how humans operate, how our civilisations work...Where one small group of people take charge of an entire nation, an entire 70 million with regard to the UK. Where this group break promises and lies to the masses to secure power. Then proceeds to rule in an imperious manner; passing ridiculous laws on behalf of the secretly despotic elite class; the ceo's and bank executives.

Would would a free living alien think?
