"New opinions are always suspected, and usually opposed, without any other reason but because they are not already common."- I think this quote means that when people were't as open-minded back then, most new somewhat odd concepts or ideas were seen as illogical 'just because'. For example a lot of scientific ideas were seen as crazy or idiotic but, now they may be proven facts. When Locke showed his ideas to the people, some might have though a government like that could never run successfully, but, now, our government is run based on these laws and we are very successful.
