Hobbes and Locke were two of the great political theorists of their time.
Hobbes argues for a strong, centralized government, he clearly says that monarchy is the right form of government. He believed that the best way to protect citizens is through has a power which is intimidating and all – powerful. Example, a king wielded supreme and unchecked power over his subjects. This belief, probably, has come from the center of his natural philosophy that human beings are selfish creatures.
Whereas, according to Locke, the main purpose of government is to protect those natural rights that the individual cannot effectively protect in a state of nature. He was a key advocate of the empirical approaches of the Scientific Revolution.
I definitely agree with John Locke’s social contract theory more, not only because it is more humanistic and morally correct but also, it agrees with my belief in democracy.
