I have the most "challenging" professor and I think being nervous did not help me when writing this paper. Please tell me what you think.

Nearly everyone lives in a world that is controlled by some government system, whether anarchy, capitalist, communist or democratic. Those are only a few types of government system that exist today, but regardless of the leadership style, people want leaders for many different reasons. Dictionary.com defines government as “the act or process of governing, especially the control and administration of public policy in a political unit”. Government has to gain its control by some method, whether by some straight forward or roundabout means of force.

Hobbes believed that in order to unite people, a common power was necessary and without it “they are in that condition which is called war” (3). Hobbes also believed that without a common power individuals would fear others who would fight each other in order to gain anything and everything they wanted to own. Because fights would naturally occur, Hobbes believed that absolute power is needed to control the natural law of evil that supposedly exists within everyone. Although the nature of evil might exist in everyone, government protects me from those who are inclined to act upon this evil. For example, if anyone decides to take my property without my permission, then the role of government is to use its power or force to control people from taking what is rightfully mine. The government should also use that same power to protect me from other branches of government if they attempt to commit similar acts. It is imperative to have a government that will perform on our behalf when our morals fall short. Government has the right to set rules and guidelines that should apply to everyone, even the makers of the rules. There right should also extend to enforcing some form of punishment for those who do not adhere. I don’t think that government should extend the power to create situations that would trap people into committing evil acts or create situations where they are the ones committing the wrongful act. Rules should apply to everyone regardless of race, sex or social standing. Unlike Hobbes, John Locke believed that the natural law of mankind is to maintain their freedom through equality. Locke believed that government needs to preserve these rights in order to live in peace amongst each other. Locke put a lot of faith in people, but I think we have to consider that both the nature of good and evil exists in the world today. We should have the right to smoke cigarettes, but not at the risk of causing harm to others. We can not give individuals the free right to make certain decisions because we can not rely on the nature of good prevailing over the nature of evil. If we were responsible to set our own rules, with less intervention from the government then we would have the free right to change our rules at will. It would be possible to consent to abortion one day and completely change our minds the next day or we would probably choose to smoke in an enclosed room filled with people without due care. Our rules will most likely be convenient to our personal needs with little consideration on the effect it will have on the nation. The government should play the role of a mediator by listening to the voice of everyone and then act upon that if necessary.

Some people believe that the power of government should be limited to the control of national defense and law enforcement. But we need other restrictions to ensure that people do not act upon their nature of evil, especially when there is a continuous battle about equality in society. We will never live in a society that is equal, there will always be a conflict whether between rich or poor or Jewish or Catholic. What the government should do is provide a system that will unite society and not divide it. Once the rules of set by government are established, people should be allowed to live the way they want and the government should only intervene when and if they infringe upon someone else rights when doing so.
OK darlin’ I’m not the best person for the job just now, but here goes.

Could you please include the exact wording of the essay question. You might be surprised how in some disciplines, the faculty will give you a big fat 0 if you are off-topic. I’m serious about that by the way.

I wouldn’t do it this way darlin’. Philosophy is mostly about definitions. A dictionary definition is not adequate to encapsulate the definition of government. It needs be put in it’s historical context and in terms of successive paradigms.

It’s a very short essay. The word limit makes this kind of essay especially difficult I think. Actually, it would be easier for me to re-write the whole essay according to the way I was taught than to make any more comments. Is that OK with you? One hot bake essay comin’ up!
LOL, your comment is so cute. Thanks a lot I really appreciate it. The essay is actually due today so I'll look out for your hot baked essay with one eye and both fingers crossed cause the timing may not work out.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Howdy sheracar, I guess the least I can do is just get your paper reading a little easier – no promises about perfect grammar and I just can’t do anything else tonight. Can you give us a tiny bit more notice next time?
OK my darlin’, I’ve done my very best in a short time. I’ve made a few tiny little changes to the vocabulary and just fiddled around (to stop myself getting’ bored late at night LOL). What I’m too tired to do is iron out the tenses throughout the essay. Don’t worry too much, it’s OK really.

Nearly everyone lives in a world that is controlled by some government system, whether capitalist, communist democratic or where Political power truly grows out of the barrel of a gun. From ancient times to the present, groups of people have chosen pragmatic ways to get along together, and in some shape or form, governments are an everyday reality for our species. Regardless of the leadership style, people want leaders for many different reasons. Dictionary.com defines government as “the act or process of governing, especially the control and administration of public policy in a political unit”. Government has to gain its control by some method, whether by some straightforward or roundabout means of force.

Hobbes also believed that without a common power individuals would fear others who would fight each other in order to gain anything and everything they wanted to own. Because fights would naturally occur, Hobbes believed that absolute power is needed to control the natural law of evil that is supposedly intrinsic to mankind.

Although the nature of evil might exist in everyone, government protects me from those who are inclined to act upon this evil. For example, if anyone decides to take my property without my permission, then the role of government is to use its power or force to control people from taking what is rightfully mine.

It is imperative to have a government that will perform on our behalf when our morals fall short. Government has the right to set rules and guidelines that should apply to everyone, even the makers of the rules. There right should also extend to enforcing some form of punishment for those who do not adhere to the pattern of life under authority. .

I don’t think that government should extend the power to create situations that would trap people into committing evil acts or create situations where they are the ones committing the wrongful act. Rules should apply to everyone regardless of race, sex or social standing. Unlike Hobbes, John Locke believed that the natural law of mankind is to maintain their freedom through equality.

Some people believe that the power of government should be limited to the control of national defense and law enforcement. But we need other restrictions to ensure that people do not act according to unbridled self-interest, especially when there is a continuous battle about equality in society. We will never live in a society that is sufficiently equitable, there will always be a conflict whether between rich or poor or protestant or Catholic. What the government should do is provide a system that will unite society and not divide it. Once the rules of set by government are established, people should be allowed to live the way they want and the government should only intervene when and if they infringe upon someone else’s rights when doing so.
You're the best. I did a review this morning from your earlier comments and I also noticed some other things. I know this paper needs more time and effort but I guess it will have to do. I really needed your comments because I woke me up.

I know you only changed a few lines but WOW! I wish I had that much talent.

Thanks
