    Choose one of the following Enlightenment thinkers: John Locke [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Age_of_Enlightenment ] What advice do you think the writer would give to American politicians today? Explain and give specific examples from the ideas of [ the philosopher you chose. Voltaire admired Confucianism. American politicians should follow the government policies similar to the Chinese Confucian society of the past. They need to stop listening to corporate interests by focusing on the average person and be true to themselves instead of lying to everyone. Because at the end, the general public will revolt against them. The Chinese society that Voltaire admired, also believed in open education where everyone can learn for free and have equal opportunity to become successful, instead of success being for reserved for a select few, that is those who give the politicians the most money.
