We Cannot Survive in a Hobbesian UniverseBy Harley Schlanger
The cry for revenge from the Netanyahu regime, backed by western governments, coheres with the brutal world outlook of Thomas Hobbes, who described social relations as a "war of each against all." The only guarantee of peace, in the Hobbesian universe, is a Leviathan, a dictatorial power over and above any form of representative sovereign government. Are you willing to submit to such a Leviathan, giving up your rights? If not, join us to demand that governments negotiate agreements which recognize the rights of all to peace, security and prosperity.
Listen to my discussion yesterday with Helga Zepp-LaRouche, on creating a "higher peace movement" through forging a new security and development architecture: Webcast: Stop the Slaughter in Southwest Asia — Survival Depends on Having the Courage to Change Axioms!
