The Leviathan is a reference to Thomas Hobbs book Leviathan he was one of the first modern political philosophers along with John Locke and others. Hobbs believe that while each individual was rather limited and weak, that when we all joined together we created something powerful, the state. In the modern era we have come to see that many of the ideals Hobbs and Lockes took for granted were far too optimistic. They thought that since so many people were willing to fight and die for the right to vote, get and education etc... that people would care enought to take advantage of these hard earned rights. The truth is that most people would rather be ignorant, and dont really care about the fact that the state is an expression of their will. This would be fine if we had a monarchy, but we live in a democracy, so when the people dont care the Leviathan crumbles.

edit: cause I wrote it and I couldn't understand it
