Locke vs Jefferson
Transcript of Locke vs Jefferson
"we must consider, 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, within the bounds of the law of nature, without asking leave, or depending upon the will of any other man." John Locke
"All men are created equal..." Thomas Jefferson
“There is one way more whereby such a government may be dissolved, and that is: When he who has the supreme executive power neglects and abandons that charge, so that the laws already made can no longer be put in execution” John Locke
"That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government..." Thomas Jefferson
“being in full liberty to resist the force of those, who without authority would impose anything upon them” John Locke
“governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes” Thomas Jefferson
“When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to
dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to
assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to
which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect
to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes
which impel them to the separation.” Thomas Jefferson
“The reason why men enter into society, is the preservation of their property. . . whenever the legislators endeavor to take away, and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any farther obedience, and are left to the common refuge, which God hath provided for all men, against force and violence.” John Locke
"Fourthly, The delivery also of the people into the subjection of a foreign power" John Locke
“by the authority of the good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare, that these united colonies are, and of right ought to be free and independent states; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved” Thomas Jefferson
Locke idea was to show that everyone is the same, no one has more power then they other. Thomas Jefferson with the similar idea that all men are created equal.
In both quote it talk about how if a government becomes destructive, and starts to neglects it power. That the people have the power to take it down and put a new government.
The idea of both of them is to tell that no man can establish there rule, or change them.
The idea of this is that the right are freedom, and that foreign rules need to be gone
The idea from John Locke, and Thomas Jefferson are similar, in many way in the Declaration of Independence, which this idea made the foundation for country. Today this rules are still impelled, because it institute that every is free to do what they want within this rules.

The idea of this 2 quote is that there maybe outside force that may cause separation between them, and the government cant control it.
