John Locke conceived the idea of checks and balances contained in the U.S. Constitution, and he asserted that revolution in some circumstances is not only a right but an obligation. Lockeā€™s theories on the nature of the state and the manner in which governments can most effectively maintain a balance of power provided a vigorous incentive to American and French revolutionaries of the eighteenth century.
