They are carefree, happy, healthy, and living as Rousseau could only dream. This is where Rousseau differs from Locke and Hobbes: he does not see the state of nature as something to fight. Instead, we should try to retain those principles of freedom, in a more complex world than the state of nature that they came from. Property came about when someone put a fence around a tree, said “this is mine,” and no one tried to take it from him. This is where the goodness of nature began to break down. ” Property is a nearly meaningless thing because of the inequality that came from the differences between the haves and the have-nots.

This question has remained a key facet of political philosophy: who has claim to legitimate political authority and by extension power, and why? Princess Bubblegum seems like a proper ruler so why would anyone doubt that she is one, I mean, the title is in her name and everything! Thomas Hobbes (1588–1679) thought that a legitimate ruler was one who provided adequate protection to those he ruled over, even if his subjects suffered under him; in this sense it appears that Princess Bubblegum is a legitimate ruler.

The Forest Wizard, though he may listen to the opinions of the forest creatures, ultimately is a monarch, and doesn’t share the decision-making process with anyone. Hobbes in many ways is considered the father of liberalism, because he centered his theory around the people; governments (Leviathans) are still put in place by the people, and must serve the people’s purpose.
