I agree with the View of Thomas Hobbes, saying that "without an effective state power people will lapse into a state of war", this has been proven many times over with a prime example being many African nations today. Corruption in these countries mean that there is no effective state power with many states having bitter and bloody civil wars. The reason I do not agree with Rousseau's theory is because he says that people will automatically form a democracy, this is untrue as people in most situations usually form a chain of command, with someone ruling. Oh and 1st again Tom=More awesome than AlexP
