February’s Book: John Locke’s Two Treatises of Government and A Letter Concerning Toleration

Locke.A reasonably priced combo.As tolerance seems to be the new pervading theme of the Trump Administration, for this month PD felt that a little John Locke was definitely in order.

With this combo pack of John Locke’s Two Treatises of Government and his A Letter Concerning Toleration you should be able to better navigate what the media has in store for February.

Dubbed the Father of Liberalism (the liberalism that means freedom and limited government, not today’s tyranny), you’ve probably heard of John Locke before in relation to his concept of a social contract, which served as the basis for the United States’ Declaration of Independence.

Two Treatises of Government outlines Nature’s Laws, private ownership and volunteerism, while A Letter Concerning Toleration shows why a particular religion cannot be simply mandated by the State.Something to consider while being shouted at by a protester.

Though a few hundred years old, the works themselves aren’t too difficult to get down, and with only about 180 pages they are a perfect fit for February.

    A.L.O.T is really worth the read. Lincoln took a lot of that from Locke.
