Age Of Reason The Declaration of Independence Age of Reason Definition: Justice/Liberty " That when ever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect there safety and happiness." an intellectual and scientific movement of 18th century Europe which was characterized by a rational and scientific approach to religious, social, political, and economic issues Freedom of Politics Freedom "We hold theses truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among theses are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness." Freedom of Speech This connects to freedom of politics because the people have the right to overthrow the government. This connects to freedom because they gained their liberty from Britain, and have full power over their own state. This connects to freedom of speech because if something goes wrong with the government then the people have the right to give their opinion and make a change. When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the cause which impel them to the separation. WE, THEREFORE, the Representatives of the UNITED STATE OF AMERICA, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do in the Name, and by Authority of the good people of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be FREE AND INDEPENDENT STATES; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State Of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliance, establish commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. It connects to justice because it gives all men equal rights such as life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for teenagers to separate from their parents, all people are created equal no matter what age they are, and therefore have the right to make our own decisions and become independent. Full transcript
It’s obvious that all teens are created equal like adults and deserve the rights of freedom, opportunities, and the right to decide for themselves. To obtain these rights, adults will have to respect our wishes and decisions. But when parents start to argue and begin to mistreat us it makes us feel over controlled and suffocated, we are forced to establish our independence.
Teens have tolerated their unfairness for too long. It is time for us to announce the injustice of our parents.
*They have forced us to do their manual chores that they don’t want to do.
*They have forced us to think like them instead of viewing other points of views.
*They have made our life the way they want it to be without our concern.
We, therefore, the teens of the Eagle County present these facts with the permission of our fellow friends to declare our own independents to give ourselves the same powers as any free, independent adult.
