His influence in the development of colonial America
From the colonial's and English citizen's prespective John Locke demonstrated an immense amount of inegrity: exposing the previously oblivious colonials to the English governments faults and inadequacies. He revealed the abusive powers of both the church and the king, liberating the people from a world of obscurity. The colonials used Locke's morals and philosophies in their Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.
However, according to the English government's perspective, Locke demonstrated an absolute lack of integrity: urging people to rebel against the government. John created Treatise of Government emphasizing the idea of political sovereignty. Locke's Contradicting regulations demonstrated his lack of morality in the eyes of the British monarchy. This immoral behavior also appeared in his essays opposing church rule.
Was he a citizen?
Definition of citizenship: the quality and loyalty a member of a group and/or state should demonstrate
John Locke did not demonstrate the qualities of being a loyal English citizen. As a revolutionary, Locke revolted against the policies of the monarchy which is not what the loyal citizens of England would do. He even got exiled from England as a result of rebelling. John Locke wanted religious tolerance after witnessing Catholics persecuting Protestants, which represented his lack of loyalty to his country church. As a rebellion against the king of England in order to bring forth revolutionary ideas, John Locke was not a loyal citizen of England.
