Vincent Brown discusses his new book, ‘Tacky’s Revolt’
"Vincent Brown welcome to meet the rices. Slavery is war. Tell me what that means. Well. In the book. I tend to think of slavery itself as a state of war, and in that I'm following the enslaved themselves who often discuss slavery as a state of warfare amongst themselves, most famously allowed Equiano who we know as one of the most famous formerly enslaved abolitionists of the late eighteenth century British Atlantic. said in his autobiography that when you make people slaves. Them to live with you in a state of war. Now in that he was echoing the philosopher John Locke. Who said that what is slavery? But the state of war continued between what he thought was a lawful conqueror and the concord now John Locke was trying to legitimate slavery. He was an investor in the Royal African company, and he actually helped to write the constitution for the colony of south. Carolina, which became a slave state. State, but equiano was doing something a little bit different than John Locke. He was actually commenting upon the conditions of slavery, the violence that was required to maintain people in slavery and the kind of response that was bound to come by those people who had been subjected so violently so for him, slavery was a state of war, and there were other enslaved people who echoed. Seeing slavery that way helped me frame the slave revolt in Jamaica. In seventeen, sixty, seven, sixty, one, which was the largest in the eighteenth century, British Empire as a war itself right as one of a series of wars, all around the Atlantic world that then ed up in this conflict in seventeen sixty Jamaica I'd like to look at your own life, and where that intersects with war, because you grew up in San Diego, and in fact, it was very early on that. You became aware of conflicts. I did well. I'm an American citizen. I grew up in the United States. I was born in the late sixties at the height of the Vietnam War and I I'm sorry to say that I can't name a five year period when the US military hasn't been abroad somewhere engaged in conflict with somebody over the course of my entire life, which seems to me like a half century of war having. Having grown up in San Diego I grew up in one of the largest terry garrison towns really in the history of the world the US Navy is as a major base in San Diego. The US Marines just north of San Diego have a major base and so coming through high school. A lot of my friends would join the military because it was the big industry in town, right. And of course, you know, my family had been had served in the army. My father served in the army. My Uncle A. Brother had done three combat tours I. Believe one in Korea and two in Vietnam, so the history of the military, the engagement overseas abroad in military campaigns was very much a part of my thinking growing up, and so when I thought about the history of slavery. It just jumped out at me that this history was itself a history that was embroiled embedded in a world of warfare, especially in the eighteenth century win. You have got Great Britain struggling in a century long campaign against its its greatest global enemy France, and all of those European wars then topped onto. The wars of enslavement that sent people out across the Atlantic into the European colonies in America, and what you have is a world of wars within wars, which looked very familiar to me like the campaigns at the US was fighting within the larger ambit- of the Cold War so by the time I grew to adulthood in the late eighty S. I was seeing these these late cold war campaigns in these post colonial states as as part of the larger Cold War, and then you see these proxy wars between the US and the Soviet Union fought out in places like Afghanistan right, and then of course by two thousand one, you see those kind of proxy campaigns between the US and Soviet Union growing into something else what we now call the terror wars, the war on. On Terror in Afghanistan and elsewhere I didn't see those things as continuous. I didn't see the terror war something uniquely different from most proxy wars of the late. Cold War period and my thinking historically has been to ask the question. How is it that one connects these longer histories of warfare together? And I do think that I was inspired to think that partly by having grown up in San Diego in a military town. And what about your, your family's personal history with war and with slavery? Well an african-american! My parents grew up in Virginia, and so they are descended from people who are enslaved probably as far back as the eighteenth century the Chesapeake Bay area. What's now? Virginia and Maryland was one of the largest importers of slaves in North America now I say north. America because the British empire imported the vast majority of its enslaved peoples into the Caribbean but for North America the territories that became the United States, the Chesapeake and South Carolina with a major importers of enslaved African peoples, and my family is descended from. Those people probably brought to North America in the eighteenth century. History was big in your life obviously, but also the arch. Yeah well. When I was in high school I I became very involved in theater and went to college thinking that I was actually going to do a theater degree. But at some point I thought well, you know I could probably do theater without a theater degree, but maybe I should have a backup plan and my second love in college was history, and that ended up being my career.
From The Tea Party to The Resistance
"Imagine it's early. Two thousand nine. Barack Obama has just been sworn in as the first african-american president in the history of the United States after momentous election soon resistance arises. The Tea Party comes into being all over the United States. In many places people come out to say they don't like what's going on and they wanted to stop now fast forward another eight years too early. Two Thousand Seventeen President. Donald trump has just been elected and the same thing happens people all over the come out to say they don't like what's going on and they wanted to stop so the tea party and the Democratic Resistance. Are they similar? Are they different? What can we learn by looking at the two of them together? Hi I'm Avi Green. And this is the scholar strategy networks no jargon each week we discussed an American policy problem with one of the nation's top researchers without jargon in this episode. I spoke to Lagos. She is a doctoral student. Sociology at Harvard University and it contributed to the book a- bending American politics which just came out edited by Caroline Turbo and are very unbeatable. And here's our conversation. Thanks so much for coming under jargon. Thanks for having me so we could. You've set the stage by telling us some something about the tea party. No what what did professors got bull. I think. One of your other colleagues Vanessa Williamson. Learn about the tea party. You can give us that background that that would be great. Yes so professor. Scotch and Vanessa Williamson have published a lot of really interesting work on the birth of the Tea Party. And what they've done since they started in two thousand nine so after. President Obama was elected there. Was this backlash and it started off really small and small in the way that it was something people were talking about. They weren't excited for the politics of of Obama they weren't excited particularly for the economic policies. That would come with a stimulus which was referred to as Porculus and so a commentator on Fox News Rick Santelli told supporters and people who are listening. Let's go out let's protest. Let's throw t in the river. Which really translated to? Let's make our own uprising against what we think are really bad. Economic Policies so the tea party was a movement of people acting at the local level and they did this by making friends at protests between Tax Day April two thousand nine to the march on Washington in September of that. Same year organizing their friends reaching out to people on meet up on this before facebook. I really popular we kind of have to remember. This was actually ten years ago now. And the idea truly became something of we are trying to make a movement out of educating people who are interested and saying no to Obama's politics and as educational movement was wasn't is really spectacularly unique because it involved local groups engaging with one another so sharing information where he together to host lectures workshops but also working with national level funders and think tanks and candidates support groups that would be their packs that would be the candidates themselves and then also the RNC and what happened in two thousand nine is Americans for prosperity Civitas. The John Locke Foundation the coke brothers. They all got together whether in public or privately and we're starting to fund these groups not just through grants to do things or signs but their education. We want to support certain economic and voter policies in particular so came down to this idea that we're going to give education opportunities to these local groups e solid partnerships between the John Locke Foundation between Civitas. And this idea of saying let's go on educate people on the constitution. Let's talk about how local politics works and so these groups working in tandem with national organizations and there was a relationship there that started to push the party to the right large part the Republican party largely. Because there's no compromise so the tea party wasn't about finding a middle ground. It was like they took their suitcase. And they marched to the right and they haven't really stopped since and think tanks and these foundations went with them and at this time the Republican Party. Rnc were particularly hollowed out in a sense that there wasn't a lot of national and local support and there wasn't a lot of work between those two factions of the organization. So they kind of just had to go with the. Rnc could say we're a powerful group of tons of people who love the RNC who loved the Republican Party. Being what it currently is and we're GONNA fight for our status quo or are moderation or center right or there's a few people and they were basically quickly stampeded. Moseley by this this kind of insurgency on the right yes so jumps forward eight years to the flip side and before you tell us what. You found out about the resistance. Because I think you've found out a ton of things I love for you to tell me about what it was like to do this research like was this about like looking at big data sets and sitting in front of computers. Or did you get in a bus or a train or a car go someplace and if so where did you go? Yes so the thing that interests me most about the jumping forward as we have to remember that the tea party still exists so jumping forward as almost like getting on a train and we're all going in a direction of the future which is currently now the tea party produced all of this knowledge about how to engage congressmen and senators congresswoman. Anyone WHO's working in local national politics and so when it came time for the two thousand Sixteen Election Liberal Democrats were all just of course Hillary Clinton's going to win and didn't everyone was unbelievably stunned. Stunned sad I haven't seen the word devastated so often on social media and in the news before this moment and so you have. This question of people are wondering who voted for him. What's the direction America's going in? I'm devastated what's happening. And this is happening in local communities in rural areas and cities on college campuses and churches. There's this response that you see your friends on social media and this big idea of what we're looking for an we're trying to understand right like what happens after election of Donald Trump is. We automatically know. There's going to be something similar to the tea party solely because of this massive immediate response on facebook so there was a group. I don't know if anyone was a number. It was a secret group. It was called pantsuit nation. But I I'm just going to tell tell our listeners. I have to admit it I was not a member I was. It was an exciting experience. I think at the height of the group which was the day of the election. There's almost three million members and grew the idea that was you would share your excitement for a female president would wear your pants suit or your child aggressive dress up in a pantsuit to go to vote and once. Hillary Clinton lost this group went from being cheerleaders to being a support group and all of a sudden a member in this group. Teresa shook was like why don't we have a march on Washington and I'm going to jump ahead a little a pants. State Nation Actually took on nonprofit status. It was no longer able to be politically engaged in the same way so groups. This is where this whole local grassroots movement kind of picked up force. I WANNA fly there too. I think that's like a whole interesting story in itself you know. And we've had other researchers talked about the ways in which the land therapy and tax laws distort what people are able to do because activists say like. Oh I want to do war of this work and then the first thing people say. Let's get some grants so we can do it and it was like well. Let's be a five hundred eighty three and then you can't do politics the way that you were doing it before and it's a it's a very strange set of things that are happening. We talk about like it's a natural thing but it's all a manifestation of ways in which our our tax laws in our laws about regulating politics advocacy and. Who GETS TO DO IT? You know play out in real life. It's almost as if we walked into a vacuum where people want it to be able to tell stories of that experience of the support of a woman running for president her loss. And that's what happened with dancing nation but at the same time you had millions of people primarily women who were saying. I want to be more involved. I WANNA do more. How do I do it? And so there's this large push for March on Washington which became women's March which happened and two thousand seventeen and at the same time. So we're still kind of in December. You see something pop up online. It's the indivisible guide so who wrote it in and what is it and how did that play a role so visible guide was written by as relevent Leah Greenburg? Who are at this point in time have experienced as congressional staffers. Dc insiders so they understand what the tea party has been doing for the last eight years. So they post a Google doc and remember tea parties. You've been using meet up basic aged him out where eight years in the future. We've got new technology. The Google doc explodes wasn't side of it is a list of ways to beat. Donald Trump in the future based on what the tea party did. Just kind of completely agitate Obama's efforts for eight years

"And congressman poke in first of all happy thanksgiving to you and Phil and everybody else, you know, in your family, and and extended family and your state and district. Congressman welcome. Yeah. Thank you into you. And Louise and your family as well. Thank you. I was I I actually re tweeted this this morning. Somebody had tweeted a comment that said crucifixion is a terrible way to die. And it's really a shame that that had to happen to Jesus, but thirty pieces of silver. I mean, come on take, you know, we've got to take this stuff seriously. And so or words to that effect, you know, in other words, money's more important than a person's life. And I retweeted that with a comment saying that Donald Trump has betrayed the principles of the enlightenment. John Locke, even Burke on which the conservative on which this Republic was founded, and literally betrayed the principles by saying that we will we will put money over the lives over the lives of journalists in American resident, and and and and he might re tweet I said, therefore, I, you know, I think he needs to be impeached. But it wasn't so much a a call for a pitchman. It's just a. Just the shock and horror of the president of the United States saying that if another country does business with us, and they're not gonna take their business someplace else their entire military's American made stuff. They can't buy Russian-Made stuff. And just plugging spare parts are Chinese-made stuff. They have to buy from us. We have all the leverage they have not only leverage. And he just I I just I excuse me in my head is exploding. We congressman what are your thoughts. Yeah. You're looking for a sign of the morality of this president this administration. Nothing can really put the exclamation point on that immorality than what he's done in the last couple of days over two parts of the Saudi issue. One the killing of a permanent US resident a journalist who our own intelligence agencies have told us the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, directed the killing. And then Secondly, there's a Saudi led war against the people in Yemen, which fourteen million people are on the verge a half the country's population on the verge of famine. They're bombing and blocking the main port where the food fuel and medicine come in that effect seventy percent of the people in the country in for the president's response to simply be, you know, hey, they're doing business with us today. Hey gas is going down thanking them. It's a shows the immorality of Donald Trump. I mean, they had nothing to do with the price of gas going down, the American fracking, and and and we're talking about a country. That's got a population. The size of the state of California, more or less and half. That country is on the verge of famine because of a I think an illegal war, certainly immoral war being being waged against them by Mohammad bin Salman in Saudi Arabia with the help of the United States using exclusively American munitions, including apparently phosphorus, and maybe even cluster bombs things that are banned by international conventions. Although for some reason, we are still making this stuff and selling it to people around the world. Yeah. And you'll have all of that. Right. By the way. Yeah. Yeah. You do in your we're eating in the targeting and the logistics, and we were refueling in this which is making us complicit in a part of this. Which is why we wanted to go into the constitution. Article one section eight that says congress has to have a say, we're going to be involved in the war, and we had a privileged resolution that Roe Conn myself Thomas Massie Republican Walter Jones, a Republican in the house on the Senate side Senator Bernie Sanders. Chris Murphy and Mike Lee again, bipartisan coalition. Yeah. Yeah. Other Republican Senate as well. And our problem was Paul Ryan who also won't stand up to the Saudi money deep privileged it through a back door arcane procedural motion while we're trying to get a Bill that was listing gray wolves as an endangered species. The rule took away the privilege ability the ability for congress to have a say, so the Senate taking it up next week. We think they may have the votes this time if they do we're ready to reintroduce it on the house side..

"Select and I really even if I wasn't hosting that with you. I would have just been sitting in the audience anxious to hear what John was airlock had to say if there's one thing from that conversation, and we're gonna play a few of those sound bytes. There's one thing that stood out from from that conversation with John Locke what stood out to you? As you. Listen. Oh, boy, probably the Harper talk. I guess I just because everybody's talking about. Bryce Harper around town and just to see. You know, where they're at with Harper just where they're at in terms of at least visiting with him. And and Scott Boris and has there been groundwork? Are you interested in every team seems to be this point at least kicking the tires so to speak, and so I would say that was the the number one thing with that. That was what I took away and before John was on stage. And you had kind of talked to me about it. Like, what what I think? And I think a lot of teams say, okay, we're comfortable paying him a lot of money early in the deal because he's twenty six and I'm I'm saying from a team's perspective, you know, year twenty six twenty seven twenty eight twenty nine thirty. I'm cool with it. Right. Paying them a boatload of money, and then thirty one thirty two thirty three you know, if it's ten year deal. I'm not real comfortable with it. I I felt John was kind of going. I don't wanna put words in his mouth. And we'll. I hear from him in just a moment. That's kind of the the feeling I got. But again, you know, anything's on the table. And I think it gets, you know, heated up when you get to the the winter meetings. But that's what I took from it. I'm not sure the cardinals are comfortable with that ten year deal in the latter stages of it. But that's what I got from it. I'm not sure if that's what you took away from it. That was number one. And the other thing I took away from it, which I thought was unbelievably cool. And I thought it was the best part of the night. I love this part. We had one of the fans, and I thought it was just amazing that John was comfortable saying, hey, if you're a fan, and we'd said, hey fans, Johnny cool with a fan coming up in grabbing a Mike and we encouraged questions, right? We wanted to end a fan, and I'm paraphrasing this one too. But he said, you know, John, I just wanna say I'm not sure that THEO or Dave Dombrowski, and who is the other one he mentioned another guy from the the Cashman. Yeah. Brian Cashman would be doing this. But thanks a lot for doing this. And here's my question. And and mo- is I I appreciate that any answer the question, and he answered it. You know, honestly answered it a thoroughly. And I I just thought that was really cool. You know, here's a guy that's been in the organization nearly twenty five years, and and and as we pointed out he had been in a role with the cardinals now is either the GM or the president of baseball operations has never had a losing season. He's won the World Series has been multiple World Series. And here he is on the at the improv shop on a Monday night, and it's freezing cold, and he's just home from the GM meetings, and here he is answering questions from the general public. Yeah. I just I kinda surveyed the whole thing. And I thought that's really cool. And we were doing it for a charity. And I just kind of thought that was neat. You know? So that was one of the things I took away from the other night. I thought the thing that Derrick talk to Derrick who is there. I don't know if he I guess he didn't write about it. I don't know if he's going to write about, I'm sure we'll talk about it in his chat that he does. But he said. Mozelle is often times early candid in these settings. And so he wanted to see what he had to say. And the first question came from gentleman who I happen to know, James Carlton and said we heard a lot about this Stanton. Ozone a- yelich situation, and it's kind of been out there that the cardinals messed up by getting Zuma as opposed to yelich..

"Eighty one by having Ashley arrested and thrown into the tower of London, Charles accused him of high treason for supposedly having borne false witness in connection with the so-called Papa plot, which he probably did just that he could say Papa plot more often. In captivity, Ashley's health quickly deteriorated and lock immediately began working on a semblance, a legal defense on his behalf locked did copious amounts of research into the case against him and saw to it that lawyers were hired and paid conveniently Ashley's famed much of the work for him. The grand jury of commoners didn't indict him and he was released without parliament. Ashley's back was against the political wall, and he began to contemplate an armed rebellion against the monarchy. It seems unlikely that lock wasn't aware of what was going on given how close he was to Ashley, as was typical of lock. He never wrote down his exact thoughts on the political climate out of an abundance of caution. In any case locks association with Ashley, did have a negative effect on his reputation, especially back at loyalist Oxford, where there were rumblings against him. If he were expelled, he would lose his safety net and become. -pletely dependent on Ashley, but Ashley was having troubles of his own, realizing that he wouldn't be able to survive a second indictment Ashley fled to Protestant Holland in late sixteen eighty two Holland at that time was a refuge for many anti-monarchy dissenters locked didn't go with Ashley. He was traveling around Oxford at the time possibly to distance himself from Ashley's plotting three months after Ashley fled lock learned that he had died in Holland lock didn't write down any of his feelings. On the matter only that he had learned of his death. As we've discussed previously lock was not known to write his thoughts on political matters, either out of modesty or caution. In this case, he may have been wary of his writing being discovered this good of put his life in danger because of his association with Ashley, it must have been difficult to not be able to openly mourn the loss of a close friend agreed and any feeling of safety he might have had would not last long following the ri-.

This included former associates of Ashley several of whom he had arrested and executed. Now, lying to take any chances, lock God his affairs in order and fled to Holland, he made his way to Amsterdam where he integrated himself with the local English refugee and intellectual communities. In Holland lock continued to work on his pieces on human understanding and religious tolerance Amsterdam, a city that tolerated religious minorities, surely reinforced locks views on tolerance. He also continued to work on two treatises of government locks fears about being targeted, seemed to be validated when he learned that by the king's order. He had been expelled from Oxford. This must have been devastating since Oxford have been part of his life for so long, and he had seen his long-term future there. It. It was like losing a lover and companion who had been with him for over thirty years in letters to Lord Pembroke lock vehemently denied any involvement in Ashley's political affairs and tried to distance himself from the English political refugees. In Holland as was typical with lock, this was likely done out of an abundance of caution back in England. The political turmoil was far from over in February sixteen eighty five, Charles died, and James took the throne, the fear that the monarchy would become Catholic had been realized in response, Charles illegitimate brother. The Earl of Monmouth planned.

"By late sixteen eighty a year after John locks returned from his French vacation, king Charles, the second was working to get rid of parliament. He like many kings wanted as much power as possible. P started taking money from Catholic France as a way to rid himself of the need for parliaments funding. Power-hungry, Charles dissolved parliament in removed Ashley, from his position of Lord president for continuing to oppose him too radical as he might be. He was also a little wishy washy. Charles reconvened parliament in March of sixteen eighty one at Oxford, which he believed to be a more politically advantageous location than hostile London. Should he dissolved parliament again? Although Charles is flip flopping on parliament might seem like the work of an unstable king. It was actually a political calculation and order to prevent vote on an exclusion Bill while also preventing a revolt. All this would. Have certainly concerned lock who by now was far from the authoritarian, he wasn't his undergraduate days. It was during this time that he began working on his seminal political work, two treatises of government that rejected rule without the consent of the governed. It's the famous base you may have learned about in high school or college between his evolved, political beliefs and anti-catholic sentiment lock supportive. Ashley wouldn't have merely been out of duty to a friend, but one of an ideological ally who believed in his cause in spite of his lifelong caution. He was now getting his hands dirty though lock was so good at covering his tracks. We will never know exactly what influence he had. If lock was alive today, he would surely be a proponent of the dark internet for all his web browsing needs in Oxford, Charles dissolved parliament for what would be the last time during his reign. He had proposed that limits be placed on the power of a Catholic monarch. But the house of Commons was insistent on exclusion for James. This was just a thin excuse for wanting to return sole political power to the monarchy. Charles exerted this power in July sixteen.

"The idea that knowledge is gained through sense and experience that will be crucial in his later writings. But this wouldn't be his only intellectual evolution in the aftermath of the act of uniformity of sixteen sixty too many religious nonconformist found themselves oppressed by the law with his views on religious tolerance. Having evolved since his student days locked began writing what would eventually become a letter concerning toleration in sixteen sixty eight. The health problems that had plagued Ashley for the past two decades got in. Tolerably worse. He saw the king's own doctor who's prescription was to purge, although it's not clear what this meant it did, however, make Ashley's condition worse and caused a tumor to grow out of his chest, lock drain the tumor and had a silver to put into ensure that it never overflowed with fluid. Ashley would have to wear that silver tube for the rest of his life. Now, you would think that after law had saved his life, Ashley would have pushed him to continue pursuing medicine. But this wasn't the case. Ashley seeing locks intellectual potential, wanted lock to become more involved in his personal fares and to advise him on politics and economics to that end, Ashley encourage locked to study up on the nation, civil and religious affairs. Part of his new role would be working for Ashley as a secretary for the proprietors of the Carolina colony in the Americas, lock contributed to the drafting of the constitution of the call. Any and even created a system of coinage for it. This afforded lock the opportunity to invest in various colonial enterprises. It should be mentioned that this included investment in the African slave trade. However, later in life lock would change his mind on the legitimacy of slavery and divest himself from slaving companies in sixteen seventy. Now, thirty eight locked developed health problems of his own. He suffered from a cough and shortness of breath, which could either have been asthma or chronic bronchitis, whatever it was this constant consumption as he would call. It was certainly exacerbated by the air in overpopulated London. These problems would play him for the rest of his life. However, he wouldn't let his health get in the way of his intellectual pursuits. Although religious tolerance wasn't something that lock was focused on in sixteen seventy one. It wasn't issue that was back in the public spotlight with the publishing of Sam. Parker's discourse of ecclesiastical polity, which advocated for state regulation of religion. One day lock was in his personal rooms discussing the book with a small group of friends after a while, the conversation reached an impasse he realized that in order to adequately handle the controversy surrounding religious tolerance that the book brought up, they would need to approach the topic from an epistemological angle that is in a way that distinguished justified belief from opinion, he began to write some rough notes on the topic and would continue to write on and off for over a decade into half these notes would eventually become the seven hundred page book that would make him famous essay concerning human understanding. However, Lockwood soon have little time for writing in sixteen seventy two Ashley was made Lord Chancellor. The most powerful minister in the country lock was made secretary of presentations which dramatic. Weekly increased workload on top of this lock was made secretary of the council for trade and plantations. This last long though, Charles had given several points in order to appease political opponents. This included making Ashley the first Earl of Shaftesbury, a higher rank of nobility than his previous title of baron. However, this didn't quite earn Ashley's cooperation, Charles was trying to return England to Catholicism, which Ashley openly opposed. This included opposing the presume succession of James, Charles Catholic brother. Ashley went too far in his opposition and lost his position as Lord Chancellor, which meant that lock lost his job. As secretary of presentations. The upside was law could finally take a much needed break in sixteen seventy five at the age of forty, three locks. Health was failing. This was largely due to the incredible stress of working with Ashley. But the extended periods of time spent in London's polluted air didn't help.

"Writing, quote, a comment on these times is dangerous as to you useless and therefore fit for nothing. But the fire and quote, lock never wrote down any controversial, political thoughts in order to keep himself out of trouble.

That being said, if there was one thing, preventing lock from belief in religious tolerance. It was Catholics in locks opinion their allegiance to the pope in Rome and several hundred year domination of Europe made them politically dangerous despite his religious dance, lock dreaded becoming a priest as his scholarship demanded lock tried to delay this as long as possible as his love of learning far exceeded his desire to join the clergy.

The war would claim the lives of over two hundred thousand people. Most of whom were civilians being exposed to so much violence as the result of. Religion and Royal tyranny shape the way John Locke viewed the world. But the war also gave lock some unexpected benefits.

The English civil war, which was actually a series of three wars between sixteen forty two and sixteen fifty. One was experiencing a period of peace at this time. However, the looming shadow of this conflict would follow lock on his move to London. Westminster was run by a man named Richard Busby, a staunch royalist who is loyal to the monarchy and opposed to Cromwell's regime his abilities as a headmaster meant that the government overlooked his political leanings, which was highly unusual Busby's influence. Caused locked to lose his unwavering puritan faith in favor of a more liberal worldview during his time at Westminster in order to pay for expenses, he would receive money twice a year from his father, ranging from six pounds to fourteen pounds.

A typical day included rigorous instruction in classical literature as well as Latin Hebrew Greek and Arabic lock would later be critical of the school's emphasis on rhetoric, the art of persuasive communication. The also did not care for the corporal punishment meted out or the way that schoolboys were rough with each other. He eventually condemned private schooling in favor of private tutoring.

King scholarships were awarded annually through a competitive scholastic exam involving Latin grammar and written composition two years later locked tried for a second scholarship to Christ Church at Oxford. This would require him to compose a speech in Hebrew, Latin or Greek in order to convince the electors to give him a spot. Even at this age, John realized the importance of playing politics. He asked his father and Alexander Popham his father's employer to send letters to the electors and his headmaster to help win their favor. Although his chances seemed good throughout his life lock constantly question his abilities, either out of modesty or as a result of his puritan upbringing. He wrote to his father for advice on what he might do if he didn't get into Oxford, however will never know what advice is. Other might have given as in the spring of sixteen fifty to lock was awarded one of the scholarships to Christ Church..

"John Locke was a scholar philosopher doctor and scientist who grew up during the English civil war, and we'll go on to be involved in the political intrigue surrounding the restoration of Charles the second. He fundamentally changed the field of Pistole Malla g the study of thought as well as helped to inspire the American revolution with his ideas on government and religious tolerance, who's considered to be a transitional figure in philosophy, bridging the more metaphysical medieval age with the empirical and skeptical age of enlightenment. But before we get started on locks life, we need to understand the world that he was born into much of locks. Ideas of the world would be forged out of the religious strife that resulted from the Protestant reformation. The reformation generally considered to have been started by Martin Luther in fifteen seventeen with the publication of his ninety. Five theses was a direct. Challenge to the authority of the Roman Catholic church which had politically dominated Europe for centuries and headed gauged in many oppressive inquisitions. This would set off a massive wave of Protestantism throughout the continent causing schisms and two hundred years of conflict. Protestants and Catholics competed for power often violently on the local national and international levels. This included England where the throne rapidly switched back and forth between Catholic and Protestant rulers often leading to violent repression. It was during this tumultuous time that John Locke was born on August twenty ninth sixteen thirty two in a small town called ringtone located one hundred and forty one miles west of London. However, John would grew up in the nearby town of Belton locks. Father also named John was a lawyer and senior clerk to the justices of the peace. Lock senior would have a profound impact on the course of his son's life. Fostering in him a love of learning and exposing him to history philosophy and medicine. His father was incredibly strict with him. During his upbringing. We don't really know much about locks mother or the impact that she had on him luck would later describe as mother as quote a very pious woman and affectionate mother and quote. So her influence must have been positive. Lock was raised in a religious household as both as parents had been raised puritan, although lock would not be strictly puritan in later life. His upbringing imbued him with a sense of duty, modesty, and anti-catholicism..
