    Read the quote. Then answer the question that follows. "Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one; for when we suffer or are exposed to the same miseries by a government, which we might expect in a country without government, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer."—Thomas Paine Which of the following Enlightenment ideas does Thomas Paine reflect in the phrase “furnish the means?” Separation of powers, because the means of government are the responsibilities of each part. Limited government, because creating a limited government would only cause suffering. Social contract, because people can agree to a bad government as easily as to a good one. Natural law, because leaving a people to a state of nature would cause suffering.

    Social contract because they are giving the government power and are describing it as a necessary evil, which means that it is something bad that takes care of something even worse. But people can make mistakes as thomas said with the at its best and at its worst bit
