Debate between Montesquieu, Locke, Rosseau and Hobbes.
By: Renzo Guazzotti
Hi, I'm Thomas Hobbes
Hi, I'm John Locke
Hi, I'm Charles Montesquieu
Hi, I'm Jean-Jacques Rosseau
I believe that all individuals are naturally equal, in the state of nature, there are no laws or anyone to enforce them. A government headed by a president was the best form that the sovereign could take.
I think that natural rights are inalienable. The social contract is an agreement between the people and the sovereign. The natural rights of the individuals limit the power of the president, so he doesn't have absolute power.
I believe that in the state of nature individuals are so fearful that they avoid violence and war. As soon as man enters into state of society, he loses the sense of his weakness, equality ceases, and then commences the state of war.
I think that man is naturally good. Man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains. The problem in the state of nature, is to find a way to protect everyone's life, liberty and property while each person remained free. I think that people should enter into a social contract giving up all their rights to the whole community.
