Thomas Hobbes also didn 't support the idea of democracy where the citizens’ were allowed to vote for their government leaders. Due to his idea that people are only trying to promote their self-interests, democracy wouldn’t be a great idea because he wrote that “All mankind is in a perpetual and restless desire for power which can only stop in death,” so giving power to the individual would be creating a dangerous situation which would start a “war of every man against every man, “and life will be “solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.” Despite all this, Thomas Hobbes still believed a diverse group of representatives that can present the problems of the common person to king, so prevent them from being cruel and unfair but the monarch has the final
However, instead of being seen as a rolemodel, a hero or a king, to these people he was seen as a criminal. The text says, “He was held on suspicion of plotting to overthrow the government.

In Brave New World the citizens are controlled by consumption and pleasure so they are content and find no reason to rebel. This illustrates the extent and success of the brainwashing as a human being with free will would not willingly subject themselves to oppression unless bribed or ignorant.
