The Problem We All Live With

Norman Rockwell


“The state of nature has a law of nature to govern it, which treats everyone equally…[B]eing equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his life, health, or possessions.”

  • Equal rights: The belief that all persons, regardless of sex, race, ethnicity, age, etc., have the same rights as everyone else.

  • Unalienable rights: Rights that cannot be taken away from anyone, for example freedom of speech.

- John Locke


  • What is happening in this painting? which treats everyone equally…[B]eing equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his life, health, or possessions.”

“The old [traditions] are apt to lead men into mistakes, as this [idea] of [fatherly] power’s probably has done, which seems so [eager] to place the power of parents over their children wholly in the father, as if the mother has no share in it. Whereas if we consult reason or [the Bible], we shall find she has an equal title.”

- John Locke

Whereas if we consult reason or [the Bible], we shall find she has an equal title.”What is happening in the picture and how does it relate to the topic of limited government?

“Whensoever…the [government]shall…put into the hands of any other an absolute power over the lives, liberty, and estates of the people, by this breach of trust they forfeit the power [of] the people…who have a right to resume their original liberty, and by the establishment of the new [government] provide for their own safety and security.”

  • How do we balance a limited government with the protection of equal rights?
