Historically, Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau produced the most famous social contract theories. (click) Hobbes proposed monarchy. Locke proposed natural rights. Natural rights are determined by 'Laws of Nature' and 'Laws of Nature's God.' And, Rousseau proposed a maximum level of freedom.
Since Locke's theory was accepted widely by the colonists, Locke's theory was included in the Declaration of Independence (DOI) by the founders with the phrase 'Laws of Nature and Nature's God.' My work proves that God exists and is active. So, Locke's social contract theory is very important to the USA.
In response to an early letter from me, Senator Rockefeller said that U.S. lawyers say that the DOI is only an authority to go to war against England. So, a group of lawyers must have changed the DOI by reinterpreting it and destroying Locke's social contract. Here is the cause of today's ugly debates between President Obama, Republicans and Tea Party.
The DOI must have been reinterpreted some time after the assassination of Abe Lincoln because Lincoln used the DOI to start the Civil War and stop slavery. So, after 1865, a group of lawyers must have reinterpreted the DOI and changed the USA from a nation under an active God to a godless nation.
Since socialism is being rejected by Republicans and the Tea Party, the current political debate will continue.
