According to both Thomas Hobbes and John Locke, the government is necessary but at the same time, regarding the amount of governance and also the means and justifications for ruling significantly different in case of both (Fry, 1989). Therefore it appears that the ideas of John Locke have been used in the declaration of independence by Thomas Jefferson. Similarly the principles of separation of powers that were provided by John Locke have been included in the Constitution. As a result, it will be not incorrect to say that John Locke falls in the league of great men. However, after studying the stories of John Locke, it can be said that there are two things which would have been opposed by John Locke in the Constitution (Baradat, 2012).
The first thing is the lack of recognition or allowing for the rebellion in case of a government that is tyrannical. Similarly the second thing is the limitation of powers imposed on the executive, particularly as the individual will not be a monarch. On the other hand, Locke favoured monarchy particularly when it was balanced with lawmaking body like a parliament. On the other hand, it appears that the opposition of Thomas Hobbes to revolution still has a significant impact on modern political science, for example, this right has not been provided in the founding document of the United States
