Locke: Equality, Freedom, Property and the Right to Dissent
Watch this lecture, which links the Revolutionary experience in England and John Locke's two Treatises on Government. Focus on the second half of the lecture (starting with minute 19) and be sure you can discuss the logic of Locke's thinking about the powers and role of government in modern societies. Try to summarize Locke's ideology in a few sentences.
