Hey there Montesquieu!
What's up Hobbes?
I've been thinking... what if we are better off being controlled by a single monarch?
That's ridiculous! We are born free and we are meant to remain free!
Well, we are inherently selfish, so a democracy would be ineffective because we only look out for our own needs.
Many people want the same things for themselves and their families, so while there would be disagreements, most people's interests would be represented.
If we have a complete monarchy, everyone will have to live under the same rules, so no one will be able to complain.
It's okay to disagree with others - we obviously can't agree on everything. It's certainly a better solution than putting one corrupt noble in charge of everything.
That's simple enough:we can find a leader who won't completely run the country into the ground.
That's pretty much impossible. Almost every absolute monarch in history has been corrupted by unlimited power. I think we should have multiple branches of government that can limit each other's power.
How would they limit each other's power? Couldn't one branch just rise up and seize control?
No. There should be a system of checks and balances, in which each branch can negate another's actions.
