Locke vs. Bentham

This is from Lostpedia about the philosopher, Jeremy Bentham (Locke's alias).

Bentham, Jeremy (John Locke's alias) Jeremy Bentham

Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832) was an Utilitarian and Legal Positivist Philosopher. He also introduced the concept of "animal rights," but he was in opposition to the concept of "natural rights." [8]. He believed in separation of church and state, equal rights for women, the abolition of slavery, the abolition of physical punishment (even for children), free trade, usury and the decriminalization of homosexuality.

John Locke (the philosopher) was for the concept of natural rights. Jeremy Bentham was in opposition of natural rights. I thought this was important because Locke got the alias of Jeremy Bentham when he was dead. Does anyone think that was the turning point for when Locke turned into a more evil character (due to the smoke monster taking over his body)? It seems like Locke and Bentham oppose each other vehemently, and the old John Locke and the new John Locke are totally different characters as well. Does anyone else think this is important to Locke's dynamic character?
