Declaration of Independence
By: Alison Gatzemeyer
- The first principle of the unalienable rights recognizes that everyone is naturally endowed by their Creator with certain rights that cannot be infringed or given away.
This includes the right of life, liberty,and the pursuit of happiness. Every one should be able to live their life in each of these categories. No one should be eliminated from any one of these 3, or have to live their life without these options open to them
-There are 3 things that a Just Government does. It has fairness, morality, and honor. All of these are connected with the consent of government in someway. Fairness: The government is fair to all people it governs, this includes the governed and the governors. Morality: This means that they will not violate our natural rights. These include life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This sentence from The Types and Purposes of Government saying..."Many things are not moral, but to make laws banning them when they do not violate another person's liberty would be immoral." The last thing is honor. Honor: The government is able to earn honor by being fair, having a strict government. This will help control the government and will be a just government.
- The Just Government or the (Best Government) is in charge of protecting our natural rights. The laws are passed to prevent people from doing bad things, and when those laws are broken there are consequences to go along with it.
-I believe that that the unalienable rights are still all true today! We should each have life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. No one should take that away from us! When rules are made to protect our government and they get messed with there will be consequences to the person(s) that did it to help keep our government safe and protected.
-These principles do matter to me because they are what keep us safe and happy throughout our life!! We all need liberty, and happiness and just to be able to live our life. Also when our government protects us it helps us have a some what safer life to live, not having to worry about a lot of stuff, but we obviously still do have some of those people that decide to break this freedom of theirs.
