Taking the previous point forward, Locke supports the notion that a political society requires a democratic system where an unbiased judge safeguards the properties of citizens in the society and deals with punishment of crime. He believes that as long as people in the society feel safe and well-protected by the government, their primary focus will remain on accumulating more wealth and in trade (Locke, Ch 7, p 43). In other words, the people relinquish their natural freedom to the laws common to the society and the government in return safeguards their rights. When individuals come together and form a community, they are better able to enforce laws and punish offenders. This is possible because of the trust laid in these legislations (punish fitting the crime) by the people. Thereby entering in to a civil society, an individual must submit himself to the greater majority and agree to abide by the rules set by them.
