People are like animals, with an instinct to start chaos in their state of war. I've seen this in the English Civil Wars.
I wish there was a government that could control their impulses.
In this, people should not have the right to protest- they should be under complete control of the sovereignty.
Governments should be absolute in monarchy in order to protect us from ourselves.
I should write a book on this. I'll call it Leviathan.
I have an idea!
The people of England have heard Hobbes and seen absolute monarchy in our past sovereigns, so today we protest!
People will do the right thing if given education in their state of nature. I've seen this in the Glorious Revolution.
I wish there was a government that could preserve a person's natural rights to life, liberty, and property.
Governments should be constitutional in monarchy in order to preserve our goodness and rights.
I have an idea!
I am John Locke, and I believe that the nature of human kind is good. Their goodness and rights need to be preserved.
Thomas Hobbes and John Locke are modernly infamous philosophers, and their teachings have and will travel through generations.
I am Thomas Hobbes, and I believe that the nature of humankind is evil. Their evil needs to be controlled.
Despite our differences, we both reject the idea of divine right. To have a successful society, people must find reliance on each other rather than a religion.
