#1 Enlightenment

Question: Compare the views of Thomas Hobbes and John Locke on human nature. How did these views influence their ideas on the proper role of government?

Thomas Hobbes believed that people needed to be governed and are purely evil, while Locke believed that every person had the right to life, liberty, and property. Hobbes believed that there should be a monarchy and Locke believed in self government.
