1. According to John Locke, what is private property and what are some implications of Locke’s perspective on private property for Native Americans and for contemporary society? According to John Locke’s view on private property, and he thought that private property is created when a person mixes his labor with the raw materials of nature. For instance, when one people till a piece of land, and make it into a piece of farmland, which produces food, then he owns that piece of land and the food produced upon it. This led Locke to conclude that the Native America didn’t really belong to the natives who lived there, because they were, on his view, failing to utilize the land. In other words, they didn’t farm it, so they had no legitimate claim to it, and others could therefore justifiably appropriate it. For today, we can learn from John Locke’s theory that people has the right to keep their legitimate private property, no one has no reason invade other’s legal private property.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
