John Locke

The belief of Natural Laws

Bioraphy on John "Locke"

Locke was born in Wrington, Somerset, England in 1632. He was a influential Philosopher and Physician. He believed in natural laws and argued that the role of the government is to protect the rights of Life, Liberty, and Property of the people. Locke's major accomplishments were 1) he wrote two treatises of Government and 2) he argued that people had the rights to life, liberty, and property. Locke believed that it is the Government's job to protect those rights.

Connection with friends

During the Enlightenment period, one of John's friends was Earl Shaftsbury. He convinced Locke to move to London and work as his personal physician, so he did. Another friend from the Enlightenment period was Sir Francis Masham. For Locke's final 14 years in Essex he stayed with Masham and Masham's Wife. People I think John would get along with would be DJ Khaled and Oprah Winfrey. DJ Khaled because he inspires young people and works hard to accomplish things just like Locke. I think Oprah because she testified before the U.S. Congress and initiated the National Child Protection Act which makes her similar to Locke because she fought for the people.

Like a Chameleon??

"We are like Chameleons, we take our hue and the color of our moral character, from those who are around us."

--->What I get from this quote is that the people we surround ourselves with reflects who we are and what we become.
