Elighten Thinkers impact on Social Contract
Social Contract is, an agreement for mutual benefit between an individual or group and the government or community as a whole. Thomas Hobbes believed that a powerful government like a monarchy was best for society. It will compel disobedience. John Locke says if a government fails to protect the natural rights of the people, the people have the power to overthrow that government.
