HW # 6
John Locke our founding father's philosopher best set up the grounds for social contract because he was one of the enlightenment philosophers proposing the idea in the first place. His idea of people also contributed for he saw people as intelligent individuals who would stand up to and depose a corrupt government and only institute one capable of working. It was this vision of a knowledgeable people who would know when to sacrifice or grip tight that formed the spirit of a free America. Likewise this gives enough evidence to support the claim. Besides that his view of man also constituted a man that needed a government to champion its natural rights.
