Locke versus Hobbes
Conclusions: Issue: The Social Contract - survey SAYS.....

Locke: We give up our right to ourselves exact retribution for crimes in return for impartial justice backed by overwhelming force. We retain the right to life and liberty, and gain the right to just, impartial protection of our property.

Hobbes: If you shut up and do as you are told, you have the right not to be killed.
