Kunkel notes that according to 14 GAIL M. PRESBEY Hobbes’ philosophy, human beings in a state of nature are involved in a war of all against all, and so may resort to terror to save themselves. But under a social contract, individuals give up terroristic ways. The United States prefers that rights, treaties, or law of the seas not bind it, so that it can use its military might in Hobbesean fashion. Kunkel offers two criticisms of Hobbes. First, he holds that human beings are not naturally aggressive.
2 At a basic level, to mark the institutional character of military behavior, most societies use distinctive words to designate the violent acts of warriors and soldiers. The act we designate as “murder” when performed by an individual, we may re-designate as “justified use of force” when carried out by law enforcement or military personnel. This power of re-designation, which allows for legitimation or condemnation of different actions, manifests how political uses of language precede and support the pursuit of war.
Our existence is inherently violent and even murderous, since we exist in the place of some other being. Yet in the midst of our enjoyment, our egoism makes us blind to our violence. This feeling of innocence during our enjoyment is due to a lack of feelings of guilt or responsibility. Our natural self-interest can lead, in the extreme, to war. The heroes in war, starting with the ancient Greeks, are those whom we admire despite their violent behavior because we judge that their intentions are good.
