Explain why a powerful state can protect its citizens from crime

timer Asked: Feb 1st, 2014

Question description

Without a powerful state capable of deterring crime, all citizens are vulnerable to predators; therefore, human survival is promoted by the creation of a strong state capable of severely punishing any and all individuals who threaten to harm others. This describes the argument of (Points : 5) Hobbes in The Leviathan. Plato in the allegory of the cave. Aristotle in justifying oligarchy as a good form of government. Mill in advocating the rule of princes.
