"Hobbes’s 'war of all against all,' if ever that war truly raged, didn’t end with Leviathan’s appearance on the scene. The modern state merely armed the political class at the expense of the productive class, then proceeded to systematize the slaughter and — with spectacular exceptions like Hitler’s Holocaust, Stalin’s reign of terror, Mao’s Great Leap Forward and Pol Pot’s 'Killing Fields' — regulate its domestic intensity to a more bearable and sustainable level than that of all-out war between states."
