Principals of the Declaration

By: Mason Staatz

Explain the ideas of unalienable rights and government by consent.

Unalienable rights are rights that you have as a human, just because you are human, that cannot be taken away no matter what as long as you are living. Government by consent, or consent of the governed, is that the government has no power to run if the people don't give it the power it needs.

Why does a just government need consent of the governed?

Government needs consent of the governed so people are good with how the gov. is being run and it wont turn out like America and Great Britain.

Who is responsible for protecting or guaranteeing our unalienable rights?

The government is responsible for protecting and guaranteeing our unalienable rights because they are the people that have the power to do it,

Are the principles of unalienable rights and government by consent in the Declaration outdated, or are they still true today?

No, the principals are not outdated because everyone deserves everything that is stated, but we should keep adding to the unalienable rights as time goes on.

Do these principles matter to you? If so, how and why?

These matter to me because everyone deserves these rights no matter how bad of a person they are. I especially like the freedom of speech right because everyone should be able to speak their mind.
