Locke and Jefferson
Two Great Minds
How John Locke wrote the constitution.
- State of Nature-You don't have to do what people say, you are your own judge of what's right, and
- Representative Government-Citizens like you and I are in the Government.
Another thing that was mentioned was The Natural Rights of Man. Jefferson did cite that, but he did change things around. Firstly, Locke had the idea of Life, Liberty, and Property. Jefferson changed it to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
