February 20, 2009

The people have no other remedy in this, as in all other cases where they have no judge on earth, but to appeal to heaven: for the rulers, in such attempts, exercising a power the people never put into their hands, (who can never be supposed to consent that any body should rule over them for their harm) do that which they have not a right to do.

– John Locke, Second Treatise of Civil Government – Sec. 168

I’m fairly certain that John Locke couldn’t have imagined that hardly 300 years after writing his Two Treatises of Government – one of his concepts would be reduced into an internet domain name (let alone – the birth of a nation).

But, as George Santayana said:

Those who cannot remember the past, are condemned to repeat it

Much can be learned from the writers and thinkers of the past, as we press on into the future.
