About "Social Contract Theory (OPP)"
Social contract theory is a very common argument to run for government obligation, and it’s very persuasive, too. Who wouldn’t agree that a government shouldn’t protect its citizens? However, there are a few problems with the social contract theory that you can exploit in the round. This brief addresses:

- Morality above the social contract (Lock-specific)
- How globalism doesn’t harm the social contract theory
