Typical example of such scenario is the dreadful Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic consistently and persistently deforming the ability of the entire world including the richest and most sophisticated (in the truest sense of the word) nations. Also, the pandemic exposed political leaders’ weaknesses and stained their popularity, therefore, dragging their reelection prospects in a state of political limbo. However, states and multilateral institutions are waiting to see how quickly, and effectively global leaders take on the mantle of global leadership in response to the pandemic in weathering the dire storm. The coronavirus pandemic forced candidates to momentarily suspend the face-to-face interaction campaigning for about three months.

The president’s statement alone is an attempt to invite the state of nature which ultimately is anarchy. To shoulder the responsibility of providing security and protection for the subjects (people) of the state is to revert to the state of nature, which Thomas Hobbes described as the state of war. And indeed, the state of nature where the security of the people is resting in their own hands other than the responsibility of their government, they pay taxes to is a state of nature. Taken together, these plausible descriptive and normative assumptions from Hobbes yield a state of nature potentially fraught with divisive struggle. Since our security is no longer guaranteed by the state, you are simply telling us not to submit to the political authority of the state.
