It states, "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." The entire human race is born equal so, no one man is more deserving or more superior to another. Those Americans being oppressed feel powerless which makes them unable to carry out their dreams and make their hopes a reality. But it is up to those suffering to “bring back their mighty dream again”. As a black American, Langston Hughes speaks on behalf of all American
Abstract The establishent of the United States and was closely related to its people's pursuit of freedom. America had a long colonial history. Before the founding of the United States, American people had suffered plenty of unfairness. They had no rights to do assembly and had nothing to do with the local troops' occupying their houses. In order to end it up, American people at first only fought again the King's unreasonable Act, but later realized only did they fight for the independence, could they gain the real freedom.
We have forgotten the words of our fore fathers and the history of our country and all of the sacrifices that America had to endure before our time. Here are the words that Thomas Jefferson spoke that should be remembered… “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, which among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, - That whenever 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 their Safety and Happiness….” We should think these rights to apply to more than just ourselves. Any country with citizens crying out for help should be able to be within reach of these unalienable rights. There was a time not long ago where in America women and minorities could not vote and were denied many rights.
Every American is equal under the law and they can all quote you their rights, but many do not realize that political participation and civic involvement are a duty and not an option. In order for our American Constitutional Republic to thrive into the future and not just survive or coast by, we must all become more active and involved in both civic organizations and the political process. One of the major factors contributing to a lack of participation is the decline of the American family and family values. Former New York Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan blames the increase in deviant behavior on the increase of single parent families in the United States. It is easy to see how the decline of the traditional family can lead to an increase in deviance.
Why Democracy? Preserving Human Right: Democracies attempted to preserve individual freedom and to promise equality of opportunity. The U.S. Declaration of Independence expressed the belief 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.” The declarations added that the people may change or abolish the government if it interferes with those rights. People once thought that the greatest obstacles to individual freedom and equality were political.
He thought that the government would be given too much power. His thoughts on the injustices in the Constitution greatly influenced the making of the Bill of Rights. At the time, Federalists argued that the Constitution didn’t need a bill of rights, due to the fact that the people and states kept any powers not given to the federal government, but Anti-Federalists said that a bill of rights was necessary to safeguard individual liberty. So when the Bill of Rights was made it listed prohibitions on governmental power and the rights that were granted to people. When the Bill of Rights was adopted into the Constitution it was became the fundamental rights of all citizens in 1791.
My research will try to explain and discuss the differences in spiritual as well as cultural situations between men and women gender roles. Hopefully I will give the understanding of why woman have to obey the man in spite of the spiritual hierarchy and why woman continue to play the subservient role there. Gender roles differ in all parts of the world. These pivotal elements of obedience derived from a patriarchal society that expects women to play the subservient position. Is it fair for women to have the same rights as men?
Stanton helped to organize the National Women's Suffrage Association (NWSA), which aimed to overcome gender inequality by encouraging the need for women's rights. Stanton was brought up well educated but concentrated on women’s rights. She used this ethical position as an activist along with her husband to put into the Declaration of Sentiments and Resolutions everything she had learned about how women were being treated all around the United States. For instance, “He has denied her the facilities for obtaining a thorough education, all colleges being closed against her.” In the Declaration of Sentiments and Resolutions read on the first day, Stanton used pathos with a tough tone toward an audience of 200 women to provoke rage and aggression. She showed us pathos when she stated "that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights."
I think female gender wouldn’t know what the definition of “heartbreak” if all guys would treat their women like queens. Men would cater completely to women, faithfully doting on their every move. Being chivalries simply means being honest. In both sexes, Men and women must never lie to each other, even one lie. Women must also never pay for anything, ever!
Feminism itself can be viewed very differently and it entails many ideas. Feminism in its most basic form is women being considered by society to be equal to men in every aspect of life. Feminism is a simple idea but actually applying it was very difficult for society. Men and women being equal was not the norm in society many years ago. Today, there are still problems but for the most part, women are equal to men in every way except maybe physically.
