Locke believed that it was important that the legislative powercontain an assembly of elected representatives, but as we have seenthe legislative power could contain monarchical and aristocraticelements as well. Locke believed the people had the freedom to created“mixed” constitutions that utilize all of these. For thatreason, Locke’s theory of separation of powers does not dictateone particular type of constitution and does not preclude unelectedofficials from having part of the legislative power. Locke was moreconcerned that the people have representatives with sufficient powerto block attacks on their liberty and attempts to tax them withoutjustification. This is important because Locke also affirms that thecommunity remains the real supreme power throughout. The people retainthe right to “remove or alter” the legislative power(Two Treatises 2.149). This can happen for a variety ofreasons. The entire society can be dissolved by a successful foreigninvasion (2.211), but Locke is more interested in describing theoccasions when the people take power back from the government to whichthey have entrusted it. If the rule of law is ignored, if therepresentatives of the people are prevented from assembling, if themechanisms of election are altered without popular consent, or if thepeople are handed over to a foreign power, then they can take backtheir original authority and overthrow the government(2.212–17). They can also rebel if the government attempts totake away their rights (2.222). Locke thinks this is justifiable sinceoppressed people will likely rebel anyway and those who are notoppressed will be unlikely to rebel. Moreover, the threat of possiblerebellion makes tyranny less likely to start with (2.224–6). Forall these reasons, while there are a variety of legitimateconstitutional forms, the delegation of power under any constitutionis understood to be conditional.
