Principles of the Declaration

By: Brenner Maloney

  • The idea of inalienable rights and the consent of the government are 1. Inalienable Rights-We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.                     -This are the rights that can't be taken away from the people. No matter what laws or whatever they have these rights.
  • A just government needs the consent of government means that the government gets all its power from the people. The people set up the government. The people run the government. The government does not run the people. They need it because it doesn't let the government have all the power and the people be powerless and get really mad.
  • We are responsible for the protection of Ourselves, we are responsible for protect our own rights and not letting anyone one take them away.
  • Are the principles of unalienable rights and government by consent in the Declaration outdated, or are they still true today?
  • The Declaration are not outdated, they are still true today because we are using the same rules of the declaration as they were 300 years ago.
  • The principles still kind of matter because I have to be 18 for anything tho really matter but I still have the freedom of speech and The right of pursuit and happiness. So they matter to me but not fully until I am 18.
