dc.description.abstract This paper looks at the political theories of Locke and Hobbes and compares them. It then tries to draw some conclusions from their theories and apply those conclusions to our current lives. Social contract theory is a theory which receives much criticism; however, the author believes that a closer look at the theory can provide much insight into the role which government should play in our lives. en_US
