Hobbes was authoritarian and believed the monarchy was the best government so from the standpoint of law and order and the 'system', he is considered a conservative. His view on human nature can be quite pessimistic due to his belief of governance but it can be argued that he has liberal views in the context of democracy and the people's voice.
