Tongpu: When I say "without government", "killing everybody in government or with a stake in defending it" is a valid option. It's called "revolution". I guess they could also step down peacefully, or they might collapse on their own.
My personal recommendation would be giving no quarter to the authorities during a revolution.
Perhaps those who surrender might be spared, but I wouldn't advise it:
If you leave the cops and the politicians alive, they're bound to revert to their old habits. I do not believe in reeducating authoritarians: Culling them is less risky.
