US Government Who do you agree with Locke or Hobbes and why I believe that Hobbes is genuinely correct in stating that man is greedy and ambitious in nature Most things revolve around money and power therefore profit motif serves as the force that drives us We constantly try excel in everything and thus compete with ourselves and with our neighbors I do believe that everything we do is driven by one of two ways Hobbes mentions self interest Realistically even the most charitable gesture is ultimately self-serving Still when we do noble deeds we feel good about ourselves about something meant for another but born in me and that leads to pride and high self esteem It is no sin to feel good about something but it is no lie that even when a noble cause is completed we are filled with a different sensation we lacked beforehand Notwithstanding I agree with Lockes ideas on how a man is corrupted with the creation of properties and the acquired value of natural resources I am not completely certain that men rob others from their natural born right to own what Nature has offered but in accordance to Locke I disagree with men hoarding more than they can make use for Ultimately men need Nature or each other therefore I concur with Locke when he sets an example placing a man with abundant resources he has labored and are thus his in the middle of nowhere who will eventually give in to Nature or another human because he has no use for his excise
