In the Second Treatise of Government by John Locke he writes about the right to private property In the chapter which is titled Of Property he tells how the right to private property originated the role it plays in the state of nature the limitations that are set on the rights of private property the role the invention of money played in property rights and the role property rights play after the establishment of government In this chapter Locke makes significant points about private property In this paper I will summarize his analysis of the right to private property and I will give my opinion on some of the points Locke makes in his book According to Locke the right to private property originated when God gave the world to men Locke makes the argument that when God created the world for man he gave man reason to make use of the world to the best advantage of life and convenience What he means by that is that God made this world for man and when he made it he gave man the right to use what is in this world to his benefit Locke explains that every man has property in his own person and that nobody has any right to that property but that person The author states that whatsoever then he removes out of the state of nature hath provided and left it in he hath mixed his labour with and joined to it something that is his own and thereby makes it his property Locke pg 19 What Locke means by that statement is that once a person removes something out of its original state of nature that something becomes that persons property After someone gains this property are there any limitations on that property Locke believes that there are limitations on that property Locke believes that God has given us all things richly and that man may use those things
