“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, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
This is perhaps the greatest phrase written by humans.
It has worked over the years to be come more applicable to more humans. When this was written, slaves did not count. Women could not vote. In fact, only landowners could. However, I do see the wisdom behind that as they had a real stake in this country to lose.
The real beauty of this phrase is that over the years, we have matured to apply this more accurately. In today’s USA, in today’s economy, do not have to own land to have a “stake” in the well-being of the country’s present and future. It is recognized all people are created (by God) equal. It is humans who decide who is not.
This document and it’s principles are hated by those who would subjugate humans. Oligarchs, Ideologies, Nations and Psychopaths may feel it is their “right” to tell others what to do, how to live, what to think, etc. From within our Government and from outside it; from all races of humans, there is a Force that becomes more obvious day by day that uses delusion and deceit to incite people to be the minions from those who seek power over others.
I find this truth to be “self-evident;” there will always be people who will use any method of deceit or force to subjugate, as Power is only satiated by the exercise of power.
