Overall, my worldview is more aligned with Hobbes. In the state of nature, you most often find: “No arts; no letters; no society; and which is worst of all, continual fear, and danger of violent death; and the life of man, solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.”
In dangerous situations, a Hobbesian hierarchical corporate top-down society is more adaptive while in times of peace, a rights-based cooperative open society works better. Sometimes people are better off with an intense in-group identity and at other times, such as in Western big cities today, you’re usually better off operating with a Lockean moderate in-group identity with considerable openness to some types of strangers (such as those who share your profession and preferences).
In dangerous situations, a Sparta-like military state is most adaptive, and in other situations, an Athenian-empire approach works better. For most nations, nationalism is more adaptive than empire building. For most people most of the time, an above-average in-group identity is more adaptive.
In every community, there are obvious truths you should not say out loud if you want a happy life.
