L. A. Hart, as I indicate in the next chapter, in distinguishing between a set and a system of law in terms of whether there is a rule of recognition. In federations, there are various levels of law, with many of the levels not being based on commands issued by a proper sovereign. Things have gotten more complicated since the time when Hobbes ﬁrst discussed these issues, but the changes can be accommodated by the idea that when people are sufﬁciently motivated to seek peace, they will ﬁnd forms of international law that facilitate cooperation and deter violence.
Yet, by rendering oneself vulnerable, one risks that loss of life that is most feared. Hobbes’s position takes on a subtlety, though, when he admits that it is just this sense of trust that is absolutely crucial for cooperation and commerce, and that trust is also crucial for overcoming the miserable conditions of the state of nature. 32 It seems reasonable to argue that if Hobbes rejects the desirability of ﬁrst performance to the social contract, he should also be opposed to the attitudes of cooperation and trust that are essential to an international rule of law.
