Transcript of U.S. Constitution Vs. The Declaration of the Rights of Man

Compared U.S. Constitution vs. The Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizens U.s. Constitution Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen Similarities Differences Preamble Both the U.s. Constitution and the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen state certain rules and conditions that must be met and kept by the government such as liberty, common defense, justice, and ways to keep peace for all. We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. Preamble The representatives of the French people, organized as a National Assembly, believing that the ignorance, neglect, or contempt of the rights of man are the sole cause of public calamities and of the corruption of governments, have determined to set forth in a solemn declaration the natural, unalienable, and sacred rights of man, in order that this declaration, being constantly before all the members of the Social body, shall remind them continually of their rights and duties; in order that the acts of the legislative power, as well as those of the executive power, may be compared at any moment with the objects and purposes of all political institutions and may thus be more respected, and, lastly, in order that the grievances of the citizens, based hereafter upon simple and incontestable principles, shall tend to the maintenance of the constitution and redound to the happiness of all. The five major rights of the U.s. Constitution are: 1.establish justice
2.insure domestic tranquility
3.provide for the common defense
4.promote the general welfare
5.secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity The five major rights for the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen are: 1. Men are born and remain free and equal in rights. Social distinctions may be founded only upon the general good.
2. The aim of all political association is the preservation of the natural and imprescriptible rights of man.
3. The principle of all sovereignty resides essentially in the nation. No body nor individual may exercise any authority which does not proceed directly from the nation. 4. Liberty consists in the freedom to do everything which injures no one else; hence the exercise of the natural rights of each man has no limits except those which assure to the other members of the society the enjoyment of the same rights. These limits can only be determined by law.
5. Law can only prohibit such actions as are hurtful to society. Nothing may be prevented which is not forbidden by law, and no one may be forced to do anything not provided for by law. The Declaration tells us that all men are equal by nature before the law. But it always says that classes ( 1st, 2nd, and 3rd) still exist so people are not equal when classes are there. the Declaration still separates people by classes so they are not truly equal. The U.s. Constitution labels people as a whole.
