    The correct answer is Citizens would be able to form governments that ensure their interests.

    In his main book, Leviathan, Thomas Hobbes argues that in a state of nature, a pre-social state, humans are individualistic and self-oriented and, thus, tend to a war of all against all. To avoid such an anarchic and chaotic state, humans make a social contract in which everyone cedes some individual liberties to form a social structure above them all, the state, which regulates social actions and prevents the war of all against all. This state system that emerges from the social contract ensures the main interest of individuals, survival.
