Principium Volume I, Book 2, Quote 115, 124, 125

115. The end of law is not to abolish or restrain, but to preserve and enlarge freedom…where there is no law there is no freedom. For liberty is to be free from restraint and violence from others, which cannot be where there is no law.

- John Locke – The Second Treatise on Civil Government, 1689


124. Wherever, therefore, any number of men so unite into one society as to quit every one his executive power of the law of Nature, and to resign it to the public, there and there only is a political or civil society….And this puts men out of a state of Nature into that of a commonwealth, by setting up a judge on earth with authority to determine all the controversies and redress the injuries that may happen to any member of the commonwealth, which judge is the legislative or magistrate appointed by it.

- John Locke – The Second Treatise on Civil Government, 1689


125. Government should have no other end but the preservation of property.

- John Locke – The Second Treatise on Civil Government, 1689
