THE SOCIAL CONTRACT
John Locke believed people are born as blank slates--with no preexisting knowledge or moral leanings. Experience then guides them to the knowledge and the best form of life, which includes choosing to form governments to make life and society better.
His political philosophy was rooted in "social contract" theory. According to his view, a government's power to govern comes from the consent of the people themselves -- those who are to be governed. This was a change from the previous ideas of "divine right monarchy" -- that a king ruled because God appointed him to be the ruler. Locke repudiated the views of divine right monarchy in his First Treatise on Civil Government (1690). In his Second Treatise on Civil Government (1690), Locke argued for the rights of the people to create their own governments according to their own desires and for the sake of protecting their own life, liberty, and property.
governments exist only by the consent of the people
According to John Locke, political power is the natural power of every man which was collectively given up and delivered into the hand of a designated body. Thus, according to John, people hold political positions only because the people they are ruling give that position to them for a purpose, therefore, John hold that any politician who is not performing should be removed from office.
