I have to write an essay for Thursday which compares the Views of Thomas Hobbes and Peter Kropotkin. Basically I think it's about whether people are inherently good or inherently evil. I always think people are inherently good but lots of people tell me that I am very wrong. Maybe I am just a foolish optimist. So it's going to be very interesting to look at this in some detail. I'll post about this again in a few days once I have decided whether I am right or not.
