In the works of Hobbes, he states in his written theory Leviathan that human beings naturally yearn the power to live well and that they will never be content with the power they have without attaining more power. He also strongly believes that everyone is created equally and that all individuals have the same ability to kill one another and be killed. Hobbes believes that human nature leads people to seek power viewing the individual as selfish with a sole concern and interest for self and when two individuals desire the same thing is when they become enemies which ultimately leads to war. Hobbes theorizes on three fundamental causes of war; competition, distrust and glory and believes that men use violence to gain power. Furthermore, Hobbes believed that in order to create order, people will have to surrender their rights to the sovereign or monarchy to create a state of protection. In terms of property, Hobbes' conception is that property rights are to not be held against the sovereign by way of distributing property to individuals based on their level and determination exercised toward individual human gain. He concludes that human nature is such that people must join together to decide and act according to prescribed rules which they all agreed to in order to save the sovereign.
