Thomas Hobbes (enlightenment thinker) basically said everybody's a jerk & can't be trusted so they have to be controlled by a government

But as Thomas Hobbes pointed out so many years ago, civil war is also evil. Indeed it's the greatest of the lot.
Thomas Hobbes took a new look at the ways in which society should function, and he ended up formulating the concept of political science. His crowning achievement, Leviathan, remains among the greatest works in the history of ideas. Written during a moment in English history when the political and social structures as well as methods of science were in flux and open to interpretation, Leviathan played an essential role in the development of the modern world. An outspoken royalist, Hobbes fled to France during the English civil war, where he wrote this polemic, in which he calls for a powerful sovereign—a "Leviathan"—to act as an enforcer of peace and justice. Hobbes' articulation of this long-contemplated philosophy of political and natural science was finally published in 1651, two years after the overthrow and execution of Charles I. It met with a fire-storm of controversy that included charges of treason and sedition. This edition of Hobbes' landmark work is based on the original text. It incorpora ...
In my experience I truly believe that people do not just disconnect them selves from humanity and the world. Honestly I have days where I will go back to my old philosophy of Niccolò Machiavelli where I should just not trust people because they will stab you in the back when they get the chance and then I'll feel like Thomas Hobbes when he says that life is cruel brutish and short. Unfortunately I have been feeling disconnected from the world for a few days. I feel like the Underground Man from Dostoevsky. I feel like if I talk any more, I'll just be ranting and honestly I don't have the time to write something that people will pass over not caring. That is why I stopped writing my journal entries and honestly if you don't like what I say, I don't like how you think.

3.16. The earliest study by a westerner on human society is so very recent by Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679) in his celebrated book “Leviathan”.
Quotes on Humanity Or Human nature refers to the distinguishing characteristics, including ways of thinking, feeling and acting, that humans tend to have naturally, i.e. independently of the influence of culture. The questions of what these characteristics are, what causes them, and how fixed human nature is, are amongst the oldest and most important questions in western philosophy. These questions have particularly important implications in ethics, politics, and theology. This is partly because human nature can be regarded as both a source of norms of conduct or ways of life, as well as presenting obstacles or constraints on living a good life. The complex implications of such questions are also dealt with in art and literature, while the multiple branches of the Humanities together form an important domain of inquiry into human nature, and the question of what it means to be human. The branches of contemporary science associated with the study of human nature include anthropology, sociology, sociobiolog ...
Thomas Hobbes and John Lock taught us that Man created the state through a Social Contract and surrendered all his other rights but preserved the right to defend his life even when it meant resisting the sovereign. The killing of innocent Kenyans calls on our state to look at security in a different dimension. Every Kenyan has a right to defend their life against any threat from any quarter. It is time all Kenyans of good character and judgment above the age of eighteen to be authorized to bear arms if they so wish for the sake of self defense. The insecurity caused by this is counterbalanced by that fact that everyone will be their own security and the disciplined forces will be there for state security as well as our general security. there is no other way. Kenyans must not be slaughtered like chicken in their own country. Lamu/ Mpeketoni was a sad occurrence. Security starts with me so let me own my own Gun I will defend myself before the police arrive or I will defend the police incase they are caught ...

Sometimes i wonder if actually Nigeria is the state of nature in which life, Thomas Hobbes (a Social Contract theorist) described as short, nasty, brutish and solitarily poor. If not, this must be a great prophecy which Locke envisaged for Nigeria many years ago using the situation at that time as a parameter for the forcast...I'm sure he (Locke) was indeed a prophet of doom!

The ship of Theseus, also known as Theseus's paradox, is a paradox that raises the question of whether an object which has had all its components replaced remains fundamentally the same object. The paradox is most notably recorded by Plutarch in Life of Theseus from the late 1st century. Plutarch asked whether a ship which was restored by replacing all and every of its wooden parts, remained the same ship. The paradox had been discussed by more ancient philosophers such as Heraclitus, Socrates, and Plato prior to Plutarch's writings; and more recently by Thomas Hobbes and John Locke. There are several variants, notably "grandfather's axe", and in the UK "Trigger's Broom". This thought experiment is "a model for the philosophers"; some say, "it remained the same," some saying, "it did not remain the same".

          The classical liberal tradition is rich and varied, and no work, let alone an exam, could possibly do it justice.  After a brief genealogical summary I will be focusing on the most articulate and interesting classical liberal account of law developed in recent years: that of Richard Posner.   The classical liberal doctrine found its nascent expression in the work of Thomas Hobbes.  His monumental work The Leviathan remains, in the words of John Rawls, “the single greatest work of political thought in the English language.”  It is unlikely to ever have a true competitor, so vast is its scope and systematicity.          The account of human subjectivity in Leviathan is often caricatured as crude, but this ignores its central and still radical moral insight.   Hobbes’ didn’t regard human beings as either basically good or wicked, seeing both poles as effectively reiterating an Aristotelianized Christian world view beholden to the metaphysics of teleology.  As such, the polar ...

The Social Contract “Obedience of the governed depends on the governments’ (The Executive, Judiciary and the Legislative) fulfilment of their sacred vow for good governance for the greatest good to the greatest number – who have the right to rebel and oust their leaders if oppression of all sort prevails.” –Dr. Delmar T. Taclibon- “Unarmed ‘People Power’ in the Philippines ended the repressive rule of President Ferdinand Marcos in 1986. The uprising that brought President Ma. Corazon C.

For the first time, rancor and bitterness, government by patronage and we-against-them politics will not be used in the creation of an Institution in Nigeria. Folks, we are moving! It is very unprecedented, never seen anything like it before. Folks, for the first time, we-the-people take over by acknowledging Thomas Hobbes, and saying yes, "man in his natural state is brutish." But, then we do not need a leviathan to govern us. Then, go further by embracing John Locke, putting it to their faces, and saying, "we can do it, after all, we were here before the formation of any government." Ex-military ruler, Gowon created some states out of rancor and bitter; as a means to balkanize the Igbos. It was a means that served selfish ends - that end being to systematically stifle the economic of a people. The late military head of state, Murtala, created some state too. That was to ease the burden of bureaucracy. Another military junta that created states in. Nigeria was Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida, the evil genius ...
State of Nature n state of War: Thomas Hobbes.said-Life of a Man is solitary poor nasty brutish and Short.see World Book Encyclopedia 1993.
The idea of the Social Contract is one of the foundations of the American political system. This is the belief that the state only exists to serve the will of the people, and they are the source of all political power enjoyed by the state. They can choose to give or withhold this power. The origin of the term Social Contract can be found in the writings of Plato. However, English philosopher Thomas Hobbes expanded on the idea when he wrote Leviathan in response to the English Civil War. In this book he wrote that in the earliest days there was no government. Instead, those who were the strongest could take control and use their power at any time over others. Hobbes' theory was that the people mutually agreed to create a state, only giving it enough power to provide protection of their well-being. However, in Hobbes' theory, once the power was given to the state, the people then relinquished any right to that power. In effect, that would be the price of the protection they sought. Jean Jacques Rousseau and ...

That weekend of heavy heart Of all the days of my life, I had never been so grieved over a country they call mine. Never had such devastation overwhelmed me. A grief that gushed out tears. The resultant effect was a feeling of hurling abuses and curses on the insensitive and wicked clique, for the pain inflicted on young Nigerians. But will curses yield any corrective effect? Can it deter them from unleashing such cruelty in future? Of course, it was not the first time of such wickedness. But can abuses scare and compel them to do the right? Can anything even send shivers in the spine? Do they ever get conscience-stricken? When a conscience is seared with a hot iron, then the Thomas Hobbes definition of life becomes the order. Life becomes 'short, nasty and brutish'. This has become the situation in Nigeria. Life has long ceased to be sacred in this country. No more value for life. My heart has remained heavy over the Nigerian Immigration Service murder of Saturday, March 15, 2014. Though there has been c ...

I get asked questions about religion a lot. What religion are you? Do you believe in God? Are you atheist? Agnostic? I even have been asked, "If you aren't religious how can you have morals?" I think my thoughts are often mis-explained due to their complexity, but I am none of these and of course I have morals. In light of these questions, I’d like to pose some clarity on my thoughts regarding religion because I think they are important to religion and religious discussion. My experience with people from various faiths varies. There are many religions. Within these religions, there are many people who don’t strictly follow what “followers believe in.” Many Jews, like myself, don’t keep Kosher, many Muslims don’t pray 5 times a day, many Buddhists disagree on the path to Nirvana, and I won’t even get into how many denominations of Christianity there are and how many disagreements there are even within these denominations... Point being, no matter how much you dig into religion, within a relig ...

LOOKING BACK When I was a kid,I used to worry about the prospects of surviving in this harsh and unforgiving country. Though as a kid,I was obsessed with a la dolce vita lifestyle. With my peers then,we inveterated in fanciful and captivating activities. We never had anything to worry about. We preferred to play all day without food. But anytime I was chanced to frolick and waltz with my avuncular brothers,I had to go back to my decripit bed to critically ruminate on the potential manifestations of the future. Being with them,discussion about the ladies' sexual and moral depravity was usually caviled first,followed by the issue of standard of living in a nasty society. As an ignoramus about ladies' matter then,I hearkened strenously to the latter issue. I desired for a bright future. I wanted to have a splendiferous tomorrow. A posterity totally void of elusive challenges and adamatine encumberances. Then,I was worried because I was callowed. I was tentative about tomorrow because trepidation had imprison ...

A Democracy is a government by the People, everyone gets their say. The Democratic party in America, isn't being democratic. Liberalism begins with the individual, which has to do with individual rights. Individual rights are the foundation for a legitimate government. The Democratic party in America isn't being liberal. Regardless of culture, race, time or place, everyone has six mental/physical stages that are naturally experienced. Each stage exemplifies being democratic and liberal. By seeking truth the Ancient Greeks automatically created the first democracy. With reason and reason alone the age of Enlightenment came about by focusing on individual rights as a way of life. The major goal was to free oneself from political shackles, and think for yourself. Then in time master philosophers such as Thomas Hobbes, David Hume, and John Locke promoted natural rights, a democracy, a Nation based upon freedom, liberty, and justice for all - America. Moral norms are based upon inherited qualities and if ...
The due process clause of the Constitution was partly based on common law and on Magna Carta (1215), which had become a foundation of English liberty against arbitrary power wielded by a tyrant. Both the influence of Edward Coke and William Blackstone were evident at the Convention. In his Institutes of the Laws of England, Edward Coke interpreted Magna Carta protections and rights to apply not just to nobles, but to all British subjects. In writing the Virginia Charter of 1606, he enabled the King in Parliament to give those to be born in the colonies all rights and liberties as though they were born in England. William Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England were the most influential books on law in the new republic. British political philosopher John Locke following the Glorious Revolution was a major influence expanding on the contract theory of government advanced by Thomas Hobbes. Locke advanced the principle of consent of the governed in his Two Treatises of Government. Government's duty u ...

"That everyman, ought to endeavor Peace, as far as he has hope of obtaining it; and when he cannot obtain it, that he may seek, and use, all helps, and advantages of War." Thomas Hobbes ~Leviathan (in my 2 chains voice TRUE)
Sovereignty is the quality of having an independent authority over a geographic area, such as a territory.[1] It can be found in a power to rule and make laws that rests on a political fact for which no pure legal definition can be provided. In theoretical terms, the idea of "sovereignty", historically, from Socrates to Thomas Hobbes, has always necessitated a moral imperative on the entity exercising it. For centuries past, the idea that a state could be sovereign was always connected to its ability to guarantee the best interests of its own citizens. Thus, if a state could not act in the best interests of its own citizens, it could not be thought of as a “sovereign” state. May we study together? ~Prezz Pressley 2014

In love you Thomas Hobbes (17th century Philosopher). My just enough adequate knowledge of your political theory has saved me!
In 1984, Richard Tremblay began tracking 1,000 kindergarten-aged boys from Montreal’s poorest neighborhoods. Today, those kids are in their mid-30s and Tremblay’s study is one of the longest, and largest, longitudinal experiments conducted. One of Tremblay’s more surprising results is the suggestion that the peak of aggressive behavior in humans, as measured by his subjects’ willingness to resort to violence, generally occurs around the ages of two and three. Thomas Hobbes made this point in 1647: “An evil man is rather like a sturdy boy, or a man of childish mind, and evil is simply want of reason at an age when it normally accrues to men by nature governed by discipline and experience of harm.”

". . . Society has bought just enough of the Marxist snake oil that it lacks the requisite fear of God to separate good from evil - and future generations will curse us for our ignorance. There is nothing noble about "progressivism". There is nothing noble about avoiding pain today only to pass it on to your children and the children of others." - Michael Smith: "A noble man compares and estimates himself by an idea which is higher than himself; and a mean man, by one lower than himself. The one produces aspiration; the other ambition, which is the way in which a vulgar man aspires." ~ Marcus Aurelius Antoninius Because the secular humanist approach of the contemporary "progressives" focuses on incorporating the Marxist idea that religion is the "opiate of the masses", it necessarily creates a regressive and terminal view of life. If you don't believe in God or that He is good, you have no fear of destroying posterity nor do you fear an afterlife where there will be judgement to higher standards than man ...

Respice finem; in all your actions look often upon what you would have, as the thing that directs all your thoughts in the way to attain it--- Thomas Hobbes
Bitterness propels people to treat others with contempt and violence ~Thomas Hobbes
Reading an excerpt from Thomas Hobbes, "The Leviathan." College reading is tough, but strangely worth it.
If there is no agency or a body to regulate people's activities, the society will degeneraate to what thomas Hobbes called primitive society where life was "solitary,poor,nasty,brutish nd short" so lets becareful.
Peace and Conflict Resolution Studies GST 222 Introduction Conflict, as a social reality has been part and parcel of human existence. Whether it is in the "State of Nature" as described by Thomas Hobbes, or the history of ancient or modern empires, or even in contemporary history, marked by the emergence of the modern nation-state, all have witnessed one form of conflict or the other. Africa, like other continents of the world has witnessed series of conflicts. Some of the conflicts witnessed by the continent are the anti-colonial and anti-apartheid struggles in Angola, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa; the civil wars in Nigeria, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan, Rwanda, Burundi, and Democratic Republic of Congo, among others; and communal *** ethno- religious conflicts such as those experienced in Nigeria – the Tiv-Jukun, Ife-Modakeke, Pan-Gamai, and Hausa/ Fulani-Birom, Afizere and Anaguta, among several others.It is due to the effects of conflict in terms of either moving a society forward or b ...
There is one thing I hate [ with every fibre of my being] about my generation, it's a generation full of hedonists who have zero concern about intellectual affairs. Everybody in dis generation wants to be like Bill Gates or Alhaji Dangote, none strive to be like Mahatma Gandhi, Thomas Hobbes, Nicollo Machialli, Thomas Acquinas, John Stuart Mills, S. T. Umar etc. Hey! It's time we pick my generation.
“A Covenant not to defend myself from force, by force, is always void. For… no man can transfer or lay down his Right to save himself from Death.” Thomas Hobbes, 17th century English political philosopher
When Thomas Hobbes postulated that "Man is naturally born wicked" he must have studied the Nigerian system where people divert funds which ultimately causes people to suffer, die etc. It also extends to how people in authority eat three meals per day while the electorate only feed once a day. "Nigerian rulers not leaders are naturally born wicked"
The philosopher Thomas Hobbes wrote that "the life of mankind is nasty, brutish, and short." While the content of that quote may still hold true today more than 300 years later, I refuse to believe that that whole of humanity is condemned to it, especially when you are in love with someone. There is nothing more special, nothing more proud to cherish, or redeeming than the love between two people, that has so far, withstood the differences of personality and time. Sienna Little, I will continue to walk down the road with you, as long as your hand is in mine. I love you, Happy Valentine's Day.
The Ship Of Theseus Suppose we have a complete wooden ship, and one day we replace one of its wooden planks with an aluminum one. Most people would agree that the ship survives this operation; that is to say, its identity remains unchanged. But suppose that we then replace a second plank, and then a third, until our wooden ship is made entirely of aluminum. Is this the same ship that we started with? If not, when did it change? Thomas Hobbes adds a wrinkle: Suppose that, as we did all this refurbishing, someone had gathered up all the discarded wooden planks and used them to assemble a second ship. What are we to make of this? “This, without doubt, had also been the same numerical ship with that which was at the beginning; and so there would have been two ships numerically the same, which is absurd.” And philosopher Roderick Chisholm adds another: “Let us suppose that the captain of the original ship had solemnly taken the vow that, if his ship were ever to go down, he would go down with it. What, n ...

Leviathan in popular culture From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia For other uses, see Leviathan (disambiguation). William Blake's painting The Spiritual Form of Nelson Guiding Leviathan, in which the monster is a symbol of military sea-power controlled by Nelson The Hebrew monster Leviathan found in the Book of Job has given rise to many popular incarnations.

In Paradise Lost, Milton uses the term Leviathan to describe the size and power of Satan, the ruler of many kingdoms.

December Packers Periscope: Week 17 at Chicago Bears Posted in 2013 - 2014 Season,2013 Regular Season,Aaron Rodgers,Chicago Bears,Game Recaps,NFC North Division,NFL Draft,Packers Periscope,Thomas Hobbes by Thomas Hobbes The Past: The last meeting in this storied rivalry did not go so well for the Packers; losing the game was actually the smaller matter as the Packers season essentially spiraled out of control with Aaron Rodgers breaking his collarbone, which would eventually take 7 weeks to heal. The Packers did do a couple things well, notably Eddie Lacy rushing for 150 yards and James Starks chipping in for another 40 but without Jay Cutler being, well Jay Cutler, the Bears played an efficient and mistake free game with Josh McCown under center and ultimately won 27-20. For the Packers, this started a team collapse, starting first with the uncertainty at quarterback; Seneca Wallace was injured and placed on IR the next week, Scott Tolzien played with glimpses of potential, but costly mistakes ultimatel ...
On this wonderful birthday of the Federal Reserve, we should give thanks to Thomas Hobbes for his foresight into the Leviathan that was created 100 years ago. If like me though you are not celebrating the birthday of the evil system, here are 100 reasons the Fed should be abolished. 1. The Federal Reserve System constantly decreases the value of our dollar by printing money out of thin air. (inflation) 2. Graph: The value of a $1 Federal Reserve Note in 1913 dollars (the year the Fed was created). 3. The Fed even recognizes its inflationary activity. The Federal Reserve Bank ofBostonsays: “When you or I write a check there must be sufficient funds in our account to cover the check, but when the Federal Reserve writes a check there is no bank deposit on which that check is drawn. When the Federal Reserve writes a check, it is creating money.” 4. American economist Irving Fisher said: “Thus, our national circulating medium is now at the mercy of loan transactions of banks, which lend, not money, but p ...
Thomas Hobbes' LEVIATHAN is OK, but I much prefer George P. Cosmatos' 1989 remake with Peter Weller and Ernie Hudson.
I w as reading this article by one of my lecturers on death penalty. In this article , he described seven persons as "the greatest thinkers of the 19th century : Immanuel Kant , John Locke , Thomas Hobbes, ,J J Rousseau , Montequieu , John Stuart Mill & Jeremy Bentham ... I found it intruiging that he was actually able to single out 7 persons and describe them as such. Albeit the fact that it is arguable if these people are actually the 7 greatest thinkers of the 19th century , there are some questions I would want us to as ourselves as individuals . How do your friends describe you ? What is the first impression you create in the minds of those who come into contact with you for the first time? What specific impact have you made wherever you are so that in your absence , people will say if only you were here ? Can u be described as one of the best cooks , architects , students , servants , or one of the greatest in whatever field of human endeavour you find yourself ? Remember you are unique and there' . ...
I'm not even joking, I am writing a Thomas Hobbes and David Hume fanfic for my final.
Are you making straight the Lord's way to you or blocking it? This is one of Aesop’s best known fables: A Wolf meets a Lamb straying from the flock. The wolf decides not to pounce on the Lamb right away but first to give the Lamb a reason why he, the Wolf, should eat him. So he says to the Lamb: “Hi, it was you who insulted me last year.” “Actually,” replies the Lamb in a mournful voice, “I was not born then.” Then says the Wolf, “But you feed in my pasture.” “No, sir,” replies the Lamb, “I have not yet tasted grass.” “Besides,” says the Wolf, “You drink at my well.” “No,” exclaims the Lamb, “I never yet drank water, for as yet my mother's milk is both food and drink to me.” At that the Wolf seized him and ate him, saying, “Well! I won't stay without supper, even if you refute every one of my accusations.” Aesop is not the only one who sees human relationships in terms of wolves and lambs. The philosopher, Thomas Hobbes, said about the human condition that “ ...

Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Social Contract Theories talk about the people and that is where integrity, principles, fair play, equal opportunities, poverty alleviation, learning, decency, moderation, social welfare, democracy, rule of law but in Nigeria democracy today we the elite works with Thomas Hobbes and John Locke Social Contract Theories where power belongs to the leaders alone and that is where opportunism, betrayal, greed, covetousness, ethnicity, cabals, aggression, licentiousness, immoderate acquisition, authoritarianism, impunity etc. Please can someone identify by telling us here what is the structural plans behind Delta state government and its friends states today and that is why all we are here to debate is about friends in power or enemies and not about the people.
The Middle Ages to the Nineteenth Century Scholasticism, the high achievement of medieval philosophy, was based on Aristotelian principles. St. Thomas Aquinas was the foremost of the schoolmen, just as St. Augustine was the earlier spokesman for the church of pure belief. The Renaissance, with its new physics, astronomy, and humanism, revolutionized philosophic thought. René Descartes is considered the founder of modern philosophy because of his attempt to give the new science a philosophic basis. The other great rationalist systems of the 17th cent., especially those of Baruch Spinoza and G. W. von Leibniz, were developed in response to problems raised by Cartesian philosophy and the new science. In England empiricism prevailed in the work of Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, and David Hume, as well as that of George Berkeley, who was the outstanding idealist. The philosophy of Immanuel Kant achieved a synthesis of the rationalist and empiricist traditions and was in turn developed in the direction of idealism ...
Nature made men equal, in the faculties of body and mind; as that though there be found. Therefore if any two men desire the same thing, which nevertheless they cannot both enjoy, they become enemies; and in the way to their end endeavor to destroy, or subdue one another. Because of this, there is no way for any man to secure himself. Men in a state of nature, that is a state without civil government, are in a war of all against all in which life is hardly worth living. The way out of this desperate state is to make a Social Contract and establish the state to keep order and peace. Nothing could be worst than a life without the protection of the State. -reading Thomas Hobbes' Leviathan while reflecting upon the state of Eastern Visayas, Philippines.
"Nothing divine lets itself be externally enforced." - Carl Schmitt, The Leviathan in the State Theory of Thomas Hobbes (1938)
I need a break from terrorism research. Wanna be depressed? Read Philip Zimbardo's A Situationist Perspective on the Psychology of Evil. Bottom line--we all suck (or have the potential to suck with a very slight push.) But I knew that already--thank you, St. Augustine, Machiavelli and Thomas Hobbes. (Zimbardo, for those unfamiliar, is the dude who brought us the Stanford Prison Experiment circa 1971.) And if you REALLY want to drink heavily tonight, dive into Milgram's work on obedience. Think electric shocks. It'll make you never want to leave the house. I think my next career will involve puppies, or flowers, or some combination of puppies and flowers.

A few days back, there was a humorist post related to old age purporting that love and study should not belong to the domain of the old. True...to a great extent. After all we have gerontology not for nothing. It is basic to our structure to grow older, each second, each day. And it's not everyone's cup of tea to be someone like N. D. Tiwary. However, it's difficult to identify exact age point at which we begin getting old. Is it 40 ? 50 ? 60 ? This leads to the vital question : what is being old. An old person must have feeble memory, weak limbs and overall distaste to any thing new plus of course a huge load of life years on his back. But the British philosopher Thomas Hobbes translated Homer's Odyssey into English at the age of 87 and then one year later, the Iliad.

The following is just a little of what Mattieu Ricard has to say on the matter: • Belonging has significant bearing on the manifestation of altruism. • When we are happy we are more likely to engage in altruistic acts. • We feel pleasure in attaining our own ends but that is pleasure is short lived when compared to the enduring pleasure attained by exercising kindness to others. • Thomas Hobbes, a 17th century English philosopher, believed humans fundamentally selfish and selflessness was absent from behaviour. • Many evolutionary theorists believed that selfish genes have a higher probability to be transmitted to future generations. • Elliott Sober, contemporary philosopher of science, has shown t ...
