..every Man has a Property in his own Person. This no Body has any Right
to but himself.  The Labour of his Body, and the Work of his Hands, we
may say, are properly his. .... The great and chief end therefore, of
Mens uniting into Commonwealths, and putting themselves under
Government, is the Preservation of their Property.

- John Locke, "A Treatise Concerning Civil Government"
