And herein lies the importance of Hobbes: that although his case for sovereignty must be one of the weakest arguments a philosopher has ever penned, yet it is the best defense that can be made of the cowardly subservience and statist bigotry with which much of mankind has, for thousands of year and still in the present day, not only submitted to-- that might be done in a spirit of meek but unbowed nonresistance, as Socrates submitted to his Athenian jury and Christ to Pilate and the Sanhedrin and Gandhi to the British Raj, hating the sin while loving the sinner-- but condoned, endorsed, approved, cheered, praised, honored, respected, believed in
