As part of the work on the Enlightenment philosophers, I gave the kids an ten minute quiz on the block day this week. The last question asked "What was the biggest difference between the beliefs of Thomas Hobbes and John Locke?"
Among the many answers I got (most of them correct), was the following:
"The difference between Hobbes and Locke was that Locke believed in equality and Hobbes was emo."
I can see it now....Hobbes in curled powdered wig and pantaloons, pondering the meaning of life while dying his hair black and painting his fingernails with Sharpies.
