How Much Freedom? Hobbes, Locke, & Voltaire in September 2010

*Do you tend to agree with Thomas Hobbes (chaotic nature) or John Locke (humans are naturally good)? Do people need to be "tamed" and "civilized?" Or, do people need to be protected from the corruptions of society? What would Hobbes and Locke have to say about the events in the Fox News clip below? What do you have to say?

*What do you think Voltaire would say? Should there be limits on free speech? Other freedoms? How can we establish concrete boundaries (if boundaries should even exist)?

*What do you think about the following quote in light of the video clip below?
"I may despise what you have to say, but I will defend to death your right to say it."
