My name is Thomas Hobbes and I believe that people are wicked, selfish, cruel and act on behalf of their best interests.
I'm John Locke and I believe that people are good by nature and that they could learn from their experiences.
Mr. Locke, I'm atheist and I believe religion is as useful as propaganda for the state. Religion is a social force having little use as a path to salvation. I see religion as a threat to social order.
Well, I'm quite religious and I take seriously the place of God and spiritual practice in human existence. I believe in religious freedom at the expense of political implications of religious practices.
I believe in an absolute monarchy and that people are born with rights that they relinquish to the monarch. The purpose of government is to keep law and order and people have no say. What is your opinion Mr. Locke?
Mr. Hobbes, I disagree with you completely. I believe in a Democracy where all people are born with unalienable rights. I believe the purpose of government is to protect an individual's rights and liberties.
