Is Man Good or Evil? John Locke Man Is Good Treaties of Government I agree with Locke. Every man has the right to protect their natural rights. The government is in place to protect these rights. Human behavior is based on reason and tolerance. Are people in constant battle with others, that is, man vs. man? Or do people generally wish to cooperate with other, that is, man with man?

This would affect the individual, and their families. The action of the individual doesn't have to be breaking a law. It could be something like suicide. People are scared of the unknown, so why would they take their own life if they dont know whats going to happen to them after? Not to mention the pain and suffering they put those that are close to them through. "A sound mind in a sound body, is a short, but full description of a happy state in this World: he that has these two, has little more to wish for; and he that wants either of them, will be little the better for anything else."-- John Locke Man is generally good.
