john Locke's basic theory was that a higher "Natural Law" guaranteed liberty to every person and that this natural law was morally superior to all human laws and governments, each individual possesses certain inalienable rights, among these are life, liberty, and property. These theories contributed to the American Revolution and to the Declaration of Independence which when Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence he used John Locke's theory. The theories also were important to motivating the American Soldiers to continue fighting during the Revolution despite incredible difficulties.

John Locke wrote that each deserved the right to life, liberty and property. Jefferson changed the phrasing a touch stating that each deserved the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
