John locke states in chapter 2 “what state all men are naturally in, and that is, a state of perfect freedom to order their actions, and dispose of their possessions, and persons as they think fit.” “a sate also of equality, wherein all the power and jurisdiction is reciprocal, no one having more than another.” In short, all individuals are equal, human beings are equal by nature and we will remain equal. In chapter v, he talks about the division of property. For people to have their own property and belongings there should be a state to protect those properties and their rights to them. Locke claims that someone’s right to a property is his labor that he performs on this property. Property cannot be divided equally however, someone will always at some point end up having a little more than the other therefore making us unequal, making someone possessing more than the other, thus making someone more superior than another. That is in fact contradictory to his idea of human beings being equal. We cannot be equal if property was not precisely equally divided among us, thus leading us to the question locke stressed on proving, are human beings actually born equal?
Locke states in chapter VII “the beginning of politick society depends upon the consent of the individuals goyn into and make one society; who, when they are thus incorporated, might setup what form of government they thought fit.” Therefore societies only form if people come together and act together to achieve peace and get out of the state of war. Each and every single person should willingly join this society. In this society, it is decided upon things based on the majority vote, doesn’t the majority vote however mean that some people might have a different opinion on the matter? And aren’t those people one day going to reproduce and have kids, and these kids will grow, and they might not agree or want to or be in this society? Will they then be called rebels and be sentenced to death? Should they not have the freedom and liberty to choose wether they want to or not to be a part of this society as their parents and ancestors did in accordance to the state of nature all humans are born into as lock stated? “what state all men are naturally in, and that is, a state of perfect freedom to order their actions, and dispose of their possessions, and persons as they think fit.”The post readings below first appeared on https://customessayswriters.org.readings below was first posted on January 13, 2021 at 10:23 pm.©2019 "Submit Your Assignment".
