Salon Questions: Montesquieu “In my book The Spirit of Laws, I describe how I think governments should be organized. What do I call my idea, and how does it work? What am I afraid might happen if a government doesn’t use this idea?
Salon Questions: Locke – “What do I think government the purpose of government is? What rights do I think government should respect? In my famous book, Two Treatises of Government, I argue that government should exist only with the consent or approval of whom? What did I say should happen if the government does not do its job?”
Salon Questions: Hobbes – “I am sure you are familiar with my famous book Leviathan. In my book, I describe my beliefs about what human beings are really like. What are some of the words I would use to describe what people are really like? Because of my view of what people are really like, I have strong opinions about government. Why do I think governments were created? What kind of government would be best, and why?
