D. Government should have the authority to suppress the will of its citizens if it deems it to be crucial to society.
In his famous work "Two Treatises of Government" (1689), the philosopher John Locke claimed that men are by nature free and equal, but with the purpose to interact in a healthy society, it was necessary that they transferred some of their rights to a government. Such government had to be elected by the people and changed by the people; it had to be divided into legislative and executive powers and its power had to be limited (C). furthermore, the government had to make decisions that benefit the citizens, that is to say, that protected their natural rights to life, liberty, and property (B), and whenever it failed to do so, it was people's duty to replace the government.
In conclusion, Locke favored a limited government that had to be accountable for the people it governs (A), therefore it should not have the authority to suppress the will of its citizens, even if it deems it to be crucial to society.
The Correct Answer Is C
