The beginning of politic society depends upon the consent of the individuals to join into and make one society.
Gist of Idea
A society only begins if there is consent of all the individuals to join it
John Locke (Second Treatise of Government , 106)
This is the dramatic new political idea (originating with Hobbes), that all of the members must (at some point) consent to the state. In practice we are all born into a state, so it is not clear what this means in real life.
Locke,John: 'Two Treatises of Government' [Everyman 1988], p.169
