Locke, Burke and the Dollar Bill writing assignment

There is no single "right" answer to this essay; what matters most is your grasp of the work you are talking about.  Thus, research in outside sources is not required.  You will want to use the topic of the essay as a vehicle to explain the assigned reading.  Where applicable, make specific references to the text.  (A parenthetical author and page number in your essay is sufficient to footnote references.)   Analytic rigor, thoughtfulness, and clear, persuasive writing will determine your grade. In addition to content, all essays will be graded on grammar, style, and structure.

Compare how Locke (classical liberalism) and Burke (traditional conservativism) would view the same dollar bill.  Use this exercise as a vehicle describing the differences between the two ideologies.

You may wish to compare the two ideologies on a point-by-point basis or you may wish to elaborate first on one and then on the other ideology.  No more than three pages, double-spaced.
