My MLK Day will be spent finishing up an assigned reading project for a political theory course: John Locke’s Second Treatise of Government. Most of the arguments seem pretty self-evident to me, a testament to the soundness of his writings.
But I know that there is much more to Locke than meets the undergraduate’s eye. Does anybody out there have any thoughts (or tips on what to keep an eye out for) about John Locke’s musings on private property? Are there any closet monarchists out there who believe that Locke was wrong about the beginnings of political society?
Happy MLK Day folks!
