-Ensures government is fair and treats equally all men of property and industry.

-Relinquishes a few rights to enjoy freedom among equals.

-Allows and acknowledges that whichever law is not stipulated by the government is therefore an inherent freedom to by enjoyed and protected, meaning non-regulation is freedom.

Understands that an individual man cannot destroy himself nor his property. Acknowledges that absolute monarchs are but men themselves. Represents the Commonwealth and the virtues as dictated by the Christian God and Lord wherein the following philosophy is maintained:

God, when he gave the world in common to all mankind, commanded man also to labour, and the penury of his condition required it of him. God and his reason commanded him to subdue earth i.e, improve it for the benefit of life, and therein lay out something upon it that was his own, his labour. (21)
