According to John Locke, humans are naturally moral and reasonable. According to Thomas Hobbes humans are naturally cruel and evil. In my opinion, Hobbes is correct. Hobbes believes that one person rules a whole government, and that is necessary to keep the order in society. The only role the Sovereign has is to protect and keep the peace and not to resort to chaos and anarchy. What are your thoughts? (might be helpful to look up more on Locke and Hobbes)

In my opinion,Locke is absolutely right because if the rights of the people are snatched away from them by bringing monarchy and that would result in the chaos among the people.

I do accept that in monarchy its easy to handle the society but controlling the society without keeping in mind the interest of the people of it is of no use because the ultimate goal of a leader should be to satisfy the needs of the people.
