The state has a larger vision that isolated people don't and can better organize the management of precious resources over larger areas.
As for liberty...
Power is freedom and power can seldom be shared across an entire population. This is the myth of communism, of capitalism through the supposed power of spending, and over democracy. On this, Evola delivers a crippling blow to the illusion of an equal amount of liberty for all:
>Freedom does not tolerate compromises: either it is asserted or not. But if it is
>asserted, it is necessary to assert it all the way, without fear - that is, it is
>necessary to assert it as unconditioned freedom.
This is not meant for the people but a message to potential great leaders.

— Pagan Imperialism, J. Evola.
The cold truth being that many people are literally willing to subordinate should they be given enough little freedoms so they feel free.
The tragedy of Christianity is that it was full of this blatant slave mentality, but values were inverted so that the masters were not allowed to rise and the only master allowed in the room was a Lord rapturing one away from physical and philosophical struggle. The Catholic Church failed to be the Aryan Empire it could have been. It pandered to the multitude, the colored masses, the weak and the meek.
But there is no shame in submission to what deserves to be respected and followed. Nearly all military men intuitively understand this. The same goes for religious people integrated to a clear structure (which is not the case of Protestantism, which was an intrusion of the democratic "ideal" into the already rotten Christian corpus). In a way, even most employees are fairly content of receiving orders assuming they feel these orders are fair and they sense they are in good hands.
Castes and hierarchies are not an anomaly, but Jews destroy all of this, level everything and rise people against people, confused followers against legitimate leaders who, truth be said, are nearly now an entirely lost race of men (and perhaps women in some very rare cases).
The constant upheaval stands where there is no trust in a higher authority. Said authority must cover all the ranks in spirituality, war and work. The king must be the true quintessential fusion of all castes all rolled into one homogeneous mind.
