Towards A Good Samaritan World

Just got published in Tech Central Station. "Hobbes, Locke and the Bush Doctrine." Cool! Visit the front page today and you'll see my column front and center... (This is my third article with them: previously they published "The News-and-Views Industry in the 21st Century" and "Did Benedict XVI Take a Page Out of MacIntyre's Book?")

  • Great article! I am glad to see it in such a fine, respected web site. Most Americans do not know who the intellectual father of our country was. It was John Locke.
    When Light Horse H. Lee, Ben Franklin and Thom Jefferson were drafting the Declaration of Independence they were basing the document on the beliefs expressed by Locke in the work you cited.
    When Jefferson and his supporters were drafting the First and Second Amendments to the Bill of Rights they were again using TWO TREATISES OF GOVERNMENT as the basis of these amendments.

    I have a problem with one of your statements; not major problem.
    ” But nowadays God and the Bible are taken to be unproven at best…. The explicit theological basis of Bush's and Locke's positions is a weakness.”
    To you maybe. But more people in the world believe in a god than do not. The Bible is not accepted as the word of God by most people in the world, but most believe in a supreme being.
