"All mankind... being all equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his life, health, liberty or possessions." - John Locke

John Locke was an English philosopher who is widely regarded as one of the most influential of Enlightenment thinkers and commonly known as the "Father of Liberalism". Considered one of the first of the British empiricists, his work greatly affected the development of epistemology and political philosophy that we have today.

In 1690 he wrote about the separation of powers. He called for the constitutional separation of legislative and executive powers. This, he said, was the best way to protect the citizens’ natural rights.

John Locke passed away October 28, 1704.
