GoodReads Review of Thomas Hobbes’ “Leviathan”

Leviathan Leviathan by Thomas Hobbes

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
URGENT ACTION ALERT:

Join the Sovereign Advocates in support for The Monarchy Revitalization Act AD800. Now is the time to add your voice to the call for “The Rule of One.” Thomas Hobbes, a potentate’s chief promoter, thanks everyone for submitting to Leviathan and endorsing this crucial measure.

The bill AD800 calls for a government similar to those of Kaiser Wilhelm II, Henry VIII, and the Austro-Hungarian Empire also known as The Hapsburgs. AD800 will re-establish true order since all men of reason recognize that a sovereign tamps down the natural passions of man. This is not a new government but the resurrection of ancient rule in which all rights of a monarch come bundled together because each right is inherently tied to the rest.

Furthermore, Hobbes, the unflinching champion of our cause, explains:

The liberty of a subject, lieth therefore only in those things, which in regulating their actions, the sovereign hath pratermitted: such as is to choose their own abode, their own diet, their own trade of life, and institute their children as they themselves think fit; and the like.

Our Crown’s crusader means that freedom lies in the absence of laws and regulations. Hobbes understands the cold hard fact that man will always be in opposition against other forces, so, rather than fighting amongst fellow citizens, a monarchy will pull people together to operate and organize against a common enemy:

…when there is no common enemy, they make war upon each other; for their particular interests. For if we could suppose a great multitude of men to consent in the observation of justice, and other laws of nature, without a common power to keep them all in awe; we might as well suppose all mankind to do the same; and then there neither would be, nor need to be any civil government, or common wealth at all; because there would be peace without subjection.

Under the awe-inspiring rule of Hobbes’ Leviathan, we urge you to invest your income, your loyalty, and your liberties to the Reign of One, who will spur fear, undoubtedly guaranteeing peace for everyone in the kingdom.

Your emails and letters of support for AD800 are needed immediately! The Sovereign Advocates calls on all supporters of The Crown to unseat their Assemblyperson today. Only with a strong show of support from the public can AD800 remove the full Assembly. Every email, letter, and phone call to depose Assemblymembers is essential.

Please use this easy online method to oust your elected officials and then ask your colleagues, friends, and family members to do the same. Include examples from your own history books or favorite Shakespearean play in addition to the suggested content. Make a statement that you believe public investment in The Rule of One should be a priority for our country!

If you no longer wish to receive e-mails from us, our Majesty will take offense.
