Storyboard Text

  • Enlightenment Philosophers Their thoughts and ideas that helped to change the world. By Evie Darminio
  • John Locke thought that the government was supposed to support the rights of the community and if they didn't then the people had the right to prohibit the government or rupture the contract and make a new one. John Locke's shorthand had a big influence on American patriots like Thomas Jefferson and The Declaration Of Independence.
  • I Jean-Jacques Rousseau thought that the part of the government was to secure the "general will" of the people. I also thought it was the government's job to implement polices deemed favorable for general populace. My writings later provided part of the foundation for totalitarian governments.
  • Baron de Montesquieu thought the greatest grant came in government organization by advocating the ideas of separation of powers and checks and balances. His ideas are visible in the u.s constitution.
  • Voltaire blamed church leaders for keeping insight from people in order to preserve the church's power. He also opposed the government supporting one religion and forbidding others. He thought people should be free to appoint their own beliefs. Follower believed god created the world and set it into motion. He then granted it to be run itself by natural law.
