Part 2 – Essay on the Meaning of Liberty
As we read in our lectures this week, philosopher John Locke asked: “If a man in the state of nature is free, if he is absolute lord of his own person and possessions, why will he give up his freedom? Why will he put himself under the control of any person or institution?”
John Locke’s answer was: “that the rights in the state of nature are constantly exposed to the attacks of others. Since every man is equal and since most men do not concern themselves with equity and justice, the enjoyment of rights in the state of nature is unsafe and insecure. Hence each man joins in society with others to preserve life, liberty, and property.”
In at least 500 words answer the following questions:
·  In your own words, what is freedom? (*Note: dictionary definitions of the word freedom will not be accepted)

Of course the idea of having the family that is “perfect” is ideal but the truth is most families are not that. Out of my 10 closest friends only 3 have active fathers in their lives

Of course the idea of having the family that is “perfect” is ideal but the truth is most families are not that. Out of my 10 closest friends only 3 have active fathers in their lives, and out of those 10 friends only 1 has parents that are together yet they are all working to achieve their dreams and families they want and love the family they have even if not idealist. We as human beings are social creatures who create our lives by our interactions with one another often creating unimaginable bonds with people who don’t even carry the same blood as our own, creating families by pure love of one another. “We should not forget, of course, that people are most likely to have recourse to do nor insemination, in vitro fertilization, or surrogacy because they desperately desire a child. We can understand and should sympathize with that desire. Indeed, for most people, having children is the most significant under taking of their life. Certainly Christians, who revere “the Holy Family,” should not under estimate the enormous human significance of the birth of a child.” (Bioethics, n.d).

5-The point of where God would want whoever is on this earth makes a valid point but what about for genetic manipulation? DO you think it is right for a person to manipulate the child of conception? Would that still be considered what god wants in this world or what the will of person wants? I can see how genetic change can bring some good in that being able to change a factor of avoiding a serious disability but it can all also be dangerous for the child becomes an experiment.
“The use of reason and will to free ourselves from some of the constraints of nature is also part of our God given nature. Some exercises of that freedom—even when they transcend the constraints of nature—are good and should be affirmed. Other exercises of our freedom, even when they bring desirable results, may override limits that ought not be transcended.” (Bioethics, n.d).

6-I have many friends who are happy living a life without children and have no intentions in having one, as much as I have many who revolve their lives around their children and would not have it any other way. When viewing a child as an object as you stated “Lines of kinship are blurred and confused ; the child begins to resemble a product of our wills rather than the offspring of our passion; and the presence of the child no longer testifies to and embodies the union of his parents.” (Bioethics, n.d). Though a child does not have to resemble a parent, when the child is viewed as an object and playing with genetics becomes a factor the child is no longer that of a life to bring from love but by certain circumstance. Hence bringing the problems that many encounter today in adapting to fitting society and putting that in our future spawn and generations.
