Universal Healthcare “Liberty, to define it, is nothing than the absence of impediments to motion”- Thomas Hobbes

By: Diego Munoz

Thomas Hobbes would not support the current universal health care, for he believes that every person should take care of themselves instead of being selfish about other people.He had little faith in human nature and believed that only an absolute monarchy could control the unruly masses of humanity.

The right of nature… is the liberty each man hath to use his own powers, as he will himself, for the preservation of his own nature; that is to say, of his own life

Thomas Hobbes mentions how each person would have enough power to be able to take care of themselves and their life. He believes that the human nature is selfish and wouldn’t care for each other, so he thinks that every person should help themselves. Even though there are people who can help you, you should also try to help yourself as well.

The condition of man is a condition of war, or everyone versus everyone.

Human nature is very unpredictable. One moment someone will help, another moment, someone will deny.
