Hobbes never talked about poop, did he

Hobbes gave the social contract theory in the middle 16th century. Yesterday, it hit me - brought out my warring best - and also led to an agreement with his pithy "bellum omnium contra omnes", or war of all against all, that underlines human situation.
Mr. Hobbes would like to be informed that 350 years since his proposals, which saw unquestioned implementation (or perhaps how our culture of forming 'societies' came to be), things are no different. The state of warring individuals still complicates the human condition, and the state has not made the situation any different.

Oh, world, you dumb child.
