In explaining Hobbes’s  Leviathon, that would be equivelant to ‘The government of the United States.’

Whoah!  For Thomas Hobbes, the Leviathon, the power that held together society my our mutual consent, had to be fa monarch.  Hobbbes hated Democracy, in all its forms.  A strong ruler, a despot even, was preferred by Hobbes to democracy.  In this way Hobbes showed his true strongly conservative self.  If he imagined society as like a family, it was a family with a very strict Father figure, one who controlled us with an iron hand.
