Abstract

I reveal the Hobbesian undercurrents of Robert Dahl's political theory then apply his theory in an analysis of modern U.S. democracy compared to an analysis of John Locke's political theory of the same. I reveal that neither explain U.S. democratic legitimacy very well, but that Hobbe's political theory does based off of an objective definition.
