THE ENLIGHTENMENT: JOHN LOCKE By Carlton Simmons

John Locke (1632 - 1704) "All wealth is the product of labor."

John Locke, in 1632 was born in a small town named Wrington, which stood in southwestern England.

Locke believed that everyone was born with 3 Natural Rights. The Right to Life. The Right to Liberty. The Right to Property. How did this affect the government? His belief that the government should not forget they exist only for the people's benefit. The government protects the rights of the people, and if it were corrupt? The people have the consent to rebel and bring down the government, and make an entire new system.

"We are like chameleons, we take our hue and the color of our moral character, from those who are around us" - John Locke

This quote really hits spot on about behavior of others. Not too complicated of a one to understand or grasp the meaning of either. We do have a habit to become like those we are around, for better or worse.
