In the tradition of Thomas Hobbes' 1651 book Leviathan:
- Thomas Hobbes argues for a social contract and rule by an absolute sovereign. Influenced by the English Civil War, Hobbes wrote that chaos or civil war - situations identified with a state of nature and the famous motto "the war of all against all" - could only be averted by strong central government. He thus denied any right of rebellion toward the social contract, which would be later added by John Locke and conserved by Jean-Jacques Rousseau. However, Hobbes did discuss the possible dissolution of the State. As the social contract was made to institute a state that would provide for the "peace and defense" of the people, the contract would become void if the government no longer protected its citizens. In such a case, man would automatically return to a state of nature until the creation of a new social contract.
I would like to draw up a new social contract based upon the values and admonitions written in the Urantia Book. I would like to present it to the global populace, and allow every region a chance to ratify it in the manner of the US Constitution, with the intent to supersede, or empower, the United Nations.
