Thomas Hobbes thinks that government is completely necessary for two reasons that if there were no control over people, humans would be in their natural state, where everyone can pursue power and all the assets needed for a decent life. the second thing he believes in is that people have a natural tendency to want power, and win by hurting others in the way in trying to obtain that goal. Having anarchy would lead to fighting and wars, so when life is lived in this way it would be short, rough, horrific, and wild. Thomas Hobbes’s ideal government is described in his book Leviathan.
