The Social Contract Theory

By: Anavitarte, E. J.*

The theory of the Social Contract, is a theory of political philosophy, which establishes that every social group is based on a collective and tacit contract, to maintain the current social structure.

According to this, individuals abandon their state of natural freedom, where they have no other limit than themselves, to live with other individuals in exchange for increasing their safety and living conditions.

Society is not presented as an entity in itself, but as the implicit agreement to maintain it, an agreement that can be positivized, as in the case of political constitutions, or that can be destroyed and renewed, as in the case of revolutions.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English.
