The Atomic Bomb nature made men so equal, in the faculties of body and mind

Thomas B. Hobbes hated any and all violence. He had no tolerance for any kind of fighting, so much so that when the English civil war was just beginning in 1640 he banished himself to Paris, France. Hobbes would have hated the dropping of the atomic bombs. He had no tolerance for the ignorance of violent people and their doing.

The difference between man, and man, is not so considerable, as that one man can thereupon claim to himselfe any benefit to which another may not pretend, as well as he. For as to the strength of body, the weakest has strength enough to kill the strongest,either by secret machination, or by confederacy with others, that are in the same danger with hinselfe...

Hobbes wanted the world to be safe, he believed that above all men were equal. Hobbes thought that two people only fought if one desires what the other obtains. In his lifetime Hobbes argued that humanity was selfish, but that there was a remedy, he thought it was absolute sovereignty.

If one plant, sow, build,or possesse a convenient Seat, others may probably be expected to come prepared with forces united, to dispossesse, and deprive him, not only of the fruit of his labour, but also of his life, or liberty...

Hobbes would have hated the dropping of the bomb not only because of his intolerance for violence but also because of the HORRIBLE SELFISHNESS that it ENTAILED.
