More About National Individual Rights Day

John Locke was an English philosopher, popularly known as the “Father of Liberalism.” Born on August 29, 1632, he was among the most influential thinkers of his time, and strongly advocated individual liberty and rights. According to Locke, “Anything that a man has as a matter of human rights or civil rights is to remain inviolably his.” Even though humans have to live in a system where some of their natural rights are surrendered in return for the collectivity of society and protection, Locke still listed complete liberty on how to live one’s life, freedom of speech, and freedom to stand against the government as individual rights. The founder of the Objectivist Party, Dr. Tom Stevens, is a staunch supporter of John Locke’s philosophies, especially those regarding the very foundation of society — the individual. Dr. Tom Stevens, the founder of the Objectivist Party, supports John Locke’s philosophies regarding the rights of society’s smallest minority and basic unit — the individual. The exact date of the inception of the holiday is unknown, but Dr. Stevens is credited for creating the annual celebration.
