hello can u help me please?
write a few words about Machiavelli, Locke and how they are relevant today?
John Locke is another philosopher who is considered as relevant today for some of his ideas he expressed. His writings were a great influence to the founders of United States of Americas. Locke’s philosophical ideas inspired a revolution against the English rule. The new government was revolutionary or an experiment to liberal democracy. His philosophical ideas about government, freedom and natural rights doubt the power of the English monarchy in Europe. Locke philosophies affect the American declaration of independence. Today libertarians claimed Locke as their influence.
You've danced all around the subject! You haven't said what Locke wrote about or believed in.
