On Life, Liberty, and Property

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 55

In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson famously used a curious phrase to describe man’s fundamentally inalienable rights: “among these, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” What many do not know is that Jefferson was riffing off and augmenting a similar formulation from John Locke, who argued that we have inalienable rights to life, liberty, and property. Locke further argued that our right to property is meaningful in that the free use of our property is a means to enable our pursuit of happiness, thus explaining the meaning in Jefferson’s phrase. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay breaks down these inalienable rights and why they matter so much, especially in fighting against Woke Marxism. Join him to learn why they are at the center of everything we must protect and the primary target for any tyrant who would rule over us.
