On Locke's Argument for Government

The Journal of Libertarian Studies
07/30/2014David B. Suits

What requires explanation or justification depends on what is taken as being given: what comes into question depends on what one already believes. The inertia of one's present outlook - sometimes too hastily labeled by others as a bias - gives one a sense of commitment without which possible justifications for one's position might be overlooked. Nor does an ability to empathize usually carry such a sense of commitment.
