I read more here and now I have real reasons beyond his insane excuse for theology. Things just get worse Brother.
Hobbes believes that PRUDENCE is not part of philosophy at all.
Ok, criticize Aristotle was the hype until XXth century, when he makes a glorious returns due to the Ethics of Virtue, that may be accepted on Christian (as Saint Thomas Aquinas did openly on his work) and atheist circles. It is fine to criticize Aristotle physics and observational model of science, in fact people on that era forgot that he divided science into fields, and that his method was the best for his era.
He reached to the point of saying what philosophy is, Hobbes is smart and clever, all his work have excellent architectonics, almost every single chapter seems to have each words calculated. When he reached the third book and beyond he begun to get less accurate, on Chapter 3 he wants to turn the Bible into a mechanistic source to support his absolutist criteria, the Chapter 4 is an entire bs criticizing of papacy and even the Anglicans, that he wrote a different text on Leviathan hiding parts that would be offensive or maybe heretical to Anglican Church, I totally agree with you.
Thomas Hobbes is so blind into using his firepower against the Catholic Church and the Scholastic, that is his main enemy target, that he openly target Aristotle too. Well, Plato is really the sort of philosopher that most people or agree or disagree, but Aristotle ethics is not something anyone would criticize without a heavy armor.
Hobbes just go with open chest against him and all his careful study about the State and State of Nature begun to become misguided, he targets Aristotle to reach collateral damage on Scholastic.
Even a consequentialist and utilitarianism take a lot of care to go against Aristotle ethics, that is deontological, even they don't throw everything Aristotle said in the trash, even they care about the question of prudence on the calculus to maximize good for society on their philosophical project.
That's why on university it is not mandatory to reach beyond Book 2 of the Leviathan, things just begun to go nuts beyond it, just partisan politics.
Ironically in one of his first books Thomas Aquinas to teach people uses Aristotle argument for the existence of God openly quoting his name, he seems like the dude who did the convenient thing for the moment, this is hypocrisy, beyond De Cive and book 1 and 2 of The Leviathan there is nothing really philosophical on his work, only a partisan madness that break with the intelligent things he wrote before that I disagree but I respect.
I must confess that I am strongly Aristotelic, as a Thomist leaning person I think that it's inevitable, I don't believe on contractualism, about the beginning of the State, I am heavily organicist, people unite in families, families unite in tribes, tribes unite in states and the states unite in a kingdom or republic.
Oh but the indigenous, they have no state, a lot of people said, well it's a valid criticism and I answer to them just telling about the Aztecs, Mayas, Incas, the Mapuche and the Iroquois Confederation, to say at least, when they reach a complexity level of society the sovereign power comes, it's not that the stateless tribes are inferior, they just don't got complexity enough, and even among most of them there is a chief, an hierarchical order even if there is not sovereignty yet.
In fact the one world government was projected by Kant on his book, Perpetual Peace, this book openly influenced the creation of the UN on post-WW2. About States Hobbes defends that they lives on a state of nature, where people cares about preservation of life and power on the first place.
Coincidentally, the King or Queen of Britain is the head of state and of the Anglican Church, to the point of having restrictions on Catholics joining the nobility and getting the throne, ok, this happened before Hobbes, but he solidified this.
But his main project gladly failed thanks to UK banning absolute monarchy and adopting a better model of constitutional monarchy, Hobbes don't oppose a government by assembly (even a republic), but he openly prefers one man with all the power.
USA contractualist model was influenced by John Locke, he have problems but it's far better than Thomas Hobbes.
France was influenced by Rousseau, and we know what happened after all the bloodshed.
"I dethroned anarchy."
PS: I don't hate French people, well I must confess that s an Edmund Burke fan I lean towards the British, G.K. Chesterton is an big influence in my life and this British ironically taught me to like the French, my problem is with France as a State and most of his intellectuals, but honestly the French people was better when they were the Frankish people, when God sent a saint on a young girl to lead the Kingdom of France into an unexpected epic victory against the English and the Burgundians, and contrary to what most people said, the Maquis did an example on WW2, they were excellent on sabotage and spies, giving the information about the Atlantic Wall necessary for Operation Overlord and making a perfect distraction to help American, British and Canadian invasion of Normandy to liberate French. The only problem that I see with french people is that they are prone to ideological radicalism, and never, ever anger a French, by what I studied about their history when inspired they know how to fight, with bravery to the point of being on the edge.
We've been living as an American society without much struggle for too long. Say what you will about racial/class struggles, they're not nearly as bad as any other country.
People are getting too comfortable without said struggle and fail to realize that real people are on the other side of the political spectrum. They're not just dots or numbers on a screen like they are here. Real people suffer when there's famine or when there's corruption. News and social media focuses so much time on the top few percent of people that others assume everyone who isn't them lives like that. It's why some think tanks assume that, since the Amazons and Walmarts of the world can afford to pay their employees $15 an hour but don't, then everbody can.
Basically, social media is an echo chamber where the loudest and prettiest are heard most, even those who promote bad or evil ideas. Just hold faith, we win in the end when we are brought into our Father's arms.

Brothers I don't want to take up so much space in this forum but I want to ask all of you to pray for Pope Francis during his travel to Iraq.
I used to be very against Pope Francis which I regret because later I have come to see that Francis embodies the mercy and love of Jesus Christ. He may have said a wrong thing or two but I don't think it was ever malicious or willfully siding with the world over God. Francis is a man like the rest of us and God has chosen him to lead the Church through this time so we should listen more to him and most definitely pray for his success in going into a place like Iraq where just a couple of years ago ISIS militants had full control.
Pope Francis has proven himself to be a brave man and someone who loves and has faith in God. Let us all pray for him extra much during these 3-4 days that he may be protected and able to complete his mission not only in Iraq but in the world.
Jesus is Lord.
