Example text

The universality of the movement toward the state, in turn, sets up the universal character of the spaces left between states. This will be a realm of violence, undivided and unbroken, universal in its very nature. The universality of human reason, its necessary movement toward the state, will entail, always and everywhere, a zone outside the state where only the irrational rather than the rational can prevail, and where violence remains at all times its possible instrument. The universal nature of international politics thus follows logically, structurally, from the universal nature of human beings.

The State of War, Locke tells us just before the passage quoted above, is a State of Enmity and Destruction; And therefore declaring by Word or Action, not a passionate and hasty, but a sedate setled Design, upon another Mans life, puts him in a State of War with him against whom he has declared such an Intension [ . . ]3 Violence is not “passionate and hasty,” born outside of rationality; on the contrary, it exists by “design” and is very much a product of rationality. ” But rational human beings – and this is the central argument advanced by Locke – can also devise forms of governance which will build on their common rationality and desire for peace in order to obviate the emergence of violence among them.

The Hobbesian line of reasoning sets up a space inside the state where politics is possible, and, conversely, a space outside the state where it is impossible. The area between the Leviathans will then continue to be a place of violence, literally on the exterior of the lone structure able to control the violent impulses of human beings. Third, these arguments lead to a belief in the unity and coherence of international politics: all of international affairs are to remain defined, always, by the constant use or threat of violence.
