Second Treatise of Government

John Locke (1690)

Chapter 9

Of the Ends of Political Society and Government

IF man in the state of Nature be so free as has been said, if he be absolute lord of his own person and possessions , equal to the greatest and subject to nobody , why will he part with his freedom, this empire, and subject himself to the dominion and control of any other power? To which it is obvious to answer, that though in the state of Nature he hath such a right, yet the enjoyment of it is very uncertain and constantly exposed to the invasion of others; for all being kings as much as he, every man his equal , and the greater part no….

Post: Christian values play an important role in business ethics, not to mention ethics in general. The foundation of Christianity is deeply rooted in what is right or wrong. In the Old Testament the ten commandments provide a listing of moral duties, many of which regard human rights. In the New Testament, the golden rule is stated that others should be treated as we would want to be treated ourselves (Melé & Fontrodona, 2017). Because Christianity is about caring for and serving one another rather than….
