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. 2.
