Comparing Thomas Hobbes And John Locke

285 Words2 Pages
Although Hobbes and Locke both seem to have good morals and ideas, I agree the most with Locke. John believes in the equality of man, which is something i value greatly. I believe that all men (and women) are equal and capable of whatever the pursue if they work hard enough. Thomas Hobbes believes in absolute monarchy. I believe that we should work together as a government and that no person should have complete power.
John Locke was one of the most influential political philosophers of the modern period. He defends the claim that men are by nature free and equal against claims that
God had made all people naturally subject to a monarch. Locke states that “Nothing was made by God for man to spoil or destroy.” I think this is very important.
