Homo homini lupus est

Not that I have read Thomas Hobbes so I don’t know exactly in,what exact context he used the expression of man as a wolf, but surely, the suggestion from that phrase must surely be, that submission to the wolves, surrendering all power to them, would be a fatal idea.
Acording to https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homo_homini_lupus the phrase stands for: “man is a wolf to his fellow man”, if Wiki is to be trusted (never on political issues), then my standpoint must be the correct one.
