We’ll start with Kant:
The spirit of commerce sooner or later takes hold of every people, and it cannot exist side by side with war… Thus states find themselves compelled to promote the noble cause of peace, though not exactly from motives of morality.
Kant then comes closer to Hobbes:
… from the crooked timber of humanity no truly straight thing can be made.
And here is Hobbes [bold mine]:
The state of peace among men living side by side is not the natural state; the natural state is one of war. This does not always mean open hostilities, but at least an unceasing threat of war. A state of peace, therefore, must be established, for in order to be secured against hostility it is not sufficient that hostilities simply be not committed; and, unless this security is pledged to each by his neighbor (a thing that can occur only in a civil state), each may treat his neighbor, from whom he demands this security, as an enemy.
Or as Michael Oakeshott puts it:
… man is a creature civilized by fear of death.
As well our species should be.
