Alexander Wendt invented the idea that nations may treat each other in a Hobbesian, Lockean or Kantian way.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_Theory_of_International_Politics

This idea also works for individuals. As an autist, I do not believe in societies or their norms. Most importantly I believe explicit and constant threats of punishment is necessary to keep any rule effective. (e.g. Unless female adultery is banned at the pain of death or other severe punishment such as imprisonment for five years with this laws constantly enforced almost no men can keep their wives from adultery because the evolutionary incentive to commit it is always around while there are no sufficient disincentives to make adultery unprofitable.) I believe the world should be partly Lockean and partly Kantian. However the threat of reverting to Hobbesianism is always there. Unless Hobbesianism is unprofitable it will happen. For example if an individual has the ability to exterminate all other humans and believes that he/she can benefit from it he/she will do it. Hobbesianism is the default unless people can agree to cooperate.

My implicit hypothesis on humanity is that most humans are amoral and rational entities only interested in maximizing their own personal gain at any cost. Here "personal gain" includes everything the person desires instead of wealth alone. It is incorrect because most humans are not even rational sociopaths. They are irrational sociopaths who due to their extreme irrationality are unpredictable but thankfully ineffective sociopaths.

Mix it all up and you get the Declaration of Independence, plagiarized by Thomas Jefferson.
