And very soon, the US has come to be associated with the concept of individual freedom. B-Price for Individual Freedom: Self-reliance Freedom of the individual is probably the most basic and the most strongly held of all American beliefs. But do Americans mean by the word ‘freedom’?
Explain Moral Relativism Moral Relativism argues the claim that there are no universally valid rules for all people at all times, thus implying there are no intrinsic rights and wrongs. This results in Morality being relative to the individual, to their culture and their age group. In contrary Moral Absolutism is the antonym to the theory that morality is relative. Kant for example was not a moral relativist; he held the belief that we had ‘categorical imperatives’ which were always right. He believed as Absolutists believe today , we should be able to apply moral rules to everyone without making allowances for different people or circumstance , thus suggesting laws should be ‘universalisable’ .

Nothing may be prevented which is not forbidden by law, and no one may be forced to do anything not provided by law”. This idea plays a vital role in the societal vision of this declaration due to peoples’ perspective. One example that fits perfect with this role is Homosexual marriages. In some states, homosexual marriage is legal and some is illegal. Me personally, I think anyone should have a right to marry whoever they want to marry because nobody cannot change a person’s lifestyle unless that person wants to change.
And article 3 states that people should not have to live in fear and that all people have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Self Ownership is the concept that you and I as sovereign beings have full ownership and responsibility over our bodies and our minds. In Self ownership lyes the truest and most fundamental ideals of freedom-- do as you wish as long as your actions do not impede on the freedoms of others . This is a concept that many people believe we already practice in our society, but this is not the case. There are many laws that inhibit us as the owners of our bodies from having the freedom to do as we please.

When those freedoms are threatened we wont just watch them be taken from us we will stand together and fight for the rights god has given us. Jefferson was someone who saw that we needed to break away from the crown to secure our rights as a free nation.

The first amendment grants us to express our thoughts and beliefs in a free society unlike most third class and communist countries. The first amendment includes the following rights; freedom of assembly, freedom of press, freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and freedom of petition. In so many countries freedom of speech is banned, without the first amendment one would fear to even protest because they could easily be silenced, religious groups could be victimized, and citizens could not mobilize for or against social change. We wake up every day and practice these rights without even acknowledging it. We have a right to say and do what we like as long as we are obeying federal and state
