about this story

In the early 1666, John Locke met his good friend Anthony Ashley Cooper which was the first Earl of Shaftesbury, they became good friends, and since John graduated medicine, he became a loyal physician to Shaftesbury's household.

During his service to the Shaftesbury, John Locke had been writing.

In 1679, Shaftesbury led an "exclusion" campaign to stop the Catholic Duke of York (the future James III) from the royal succession. And since John Locke was only a physician to the Shaftesbury, he had no say in everything they do. He was loyal and just kept following them from behind. That campaign failed, and they were forced to flee to Holland in the year 1682. They only returned after the "Glorious Revolution" which placed their protestant, William III, on the throne.

After the game of thrones that John Locke experienced, he continued writing, and he published his significant works and was shown to others.

"There is no place like home."

John looked at the world differently because of all the experiences he had. The game of thrones surely is some experience to gain knowledge of the world.
