Storyboard Text

  • How much freedom do we have?
  • State of Nature
  • Social Contract
  • We were all born with the same rights as each other. We have 100% freedom to do whatever we want. 
  • I am a crazy murderer and I do what I want!!!
  • Oh no, she is dead! It must have been that crazy murderer again.
  • Maybe everyone having 100% freedom isn't such a good idea.
  • Perhaps the people should sacrifice some individual freedom for state protection.
  • But, the government that the people appoint should govern by established, known laws. 
  • The state should also make sure that they follow through with punishments for those who break the law.
  • This sounds like it will work very well, Thomas.

  • We can call it a Social Contract.
  • Brilliant idea John!
