    I studied this in college but don't remember that much. He basically said citizens have a right to rebel if they did not give consent to a social contract in which they are ruled by a government. In other words, a government needs citizens' consent to rule. This contributed greatly to the development of liberalism.

    "Anybody's capable of anything." That was also my father's philosophy. And Locke is a stubborn optimist - like me.
