    Another dose of ethical theory, focused this time on social organization. Several political philosophers have explained the foundation of governmental authority in terms of a fictional social contract:

    • Hobbes
      • Individuals are purely selfish, so they naturally exist in a state of war with all
      • In self-defense, we join together under the authority of a sovereign who rules
    • Locke
      • In nature, rational agents have equal right to enforce the natural law
      • For protection of “life, liberty, and property” we consent to be governed
      • (Notice the influence of this approach on founders of the United States.)
    • Rousseau
      • We are born free, so any agreement to join together is purely voluntary
      • Each individual freely chooses to serve the “general will,” the welfare of all
