Question description

But isn't the problem you're all wrestling with is the fact that while Locke sings the praises of the individual...(someone put a Meatloaf song in my head...I'm tagging him back...imagine Locke hanging out in the Haight during the 60s...don't know what the Haight is...or even the 60s?  Ask your parents), Hobbes is concerned with society as a whole?...after all...look at Yarinet's comment about what might happen if one person disagrees with any decision? 

Isn't Locke putting a lot of pressure on all of us to behave?  And doesn't he think that if you do behave you won't need government?  And isn't it possible to conclude that the reason why you have an intrusive government is that Locke was wrong about you?  That you can't behave?
