Storyboard Description

age of enlightenment - Hobbes Leviathan Vs. Locke Natural Rights - Storyboard Enlightenment Scientific Revolution

Storyboard Text

  • Locke's Natural Rights
  • Locke
  • Reasonable people can create their own governments.
  • I'm sorry you disagree with the tax codes...how can we improve them?
  • Hobbes' Leviathan
  • Hobbes
  • "Their lives will be nasty, brutish, and short"
  • #@!*
  • &%$*!
  • According to Locke, people are reasonable. They are born with the natural rights of life, liberty, and property. Governments must protect those rights...or be overthrown.
  • "The best kind of government is..."
  • I'm sure we can compromise.
  • According to Hobbes, people are not reasonable. They are born with selfish, nasty inclinations. Governments exist to keep human beings from killing each other.
  • "The best kind of government is..."
  • Indeed! Elections are coming soon.
  • We must rule with the consent of the people!
  • Fighting in the streets?! The punishment is death!
  • Government by popular consent was the motivation for the Atlantic Revolutions and the foundation of modern democracies.
  • Hobbes' view that the only way to maintain order was through absolute rule also persists. Many 21st century authoritarian governments justify their action with Hobbesian arguments.
