Magna Carta was when British Barons wanted the King to be more aware of their rights. They felt they weren't treated properly and wanted more say. King John isn't recognizing the Baron's rights. The Barons made it so they would have more say and freedom. “[Britain’s] Magna Carta and bill of rights have long been the boast, as well as the security of that nation….this principle is a fundamental one… [and] such declarations should make a part of [the United States’ frame] of government” (Document B).
Essentially, Holton makes it seem like the British were more on the side of the Indians then they were for their own colonists. The Virginians took the land by force (Dunmore’s War) because Britain was not going to play apart in negotiating land. The built up anger amongst those land speculators led to them making one of the most important decisions in American history.

In the article The Revoluting Truth by Malcolm Gladwell, he states that a colonial leader called the Britons the oppressors. This was ironic because of the fact that slavery was a huge issue in the colonies. However, in this document, Gladwell also says the colonists fight for independence was, “Ungrateful New Worlders who persistantly refused to contribute...toward the defense and upkeep of their newly claimed continent”(Gladwell). This is untrue because the colonists were able to defend their land and during the Revolution, Britain was said to have the upper hand. The colonists were so determined to become an independent country and ended up winning the

Through these formulas come the idea of imperfect and perfect duties. A perfect duty is moral truth that must be followed at all times, while an imperfect duty is one that should be followed some of the time depending on the circumstance. Kant expresses that we have perfect duties to respect other’s freedoms and we have a perfect duty to tell the truth. The AHA uses these two duties in their discussions on teaching and the shared values of historians. First off, the AHA states that presenting multiple perspectives on history are parts of the truths of history, therefore according to Kant we have a perfect duty to truth and presenting multiple perspectives.

This rational choice perspective focused on the hedonistic calculus which is the assumption that people are rational and will therefore make decisions in order to maximize pleasure and minimize pain (Alexandra Lysova Lecture 3). From here, deterrence theory was born which then lead to Cornish and Clarkes rational choice theory. This new rational choice theory has many similarities with deterrence theory which is why many people refer to rational choice theory as the new model of deterrence (Tibbetts and Hemmens 2015). Cornish and Clarkes rational choice theory first developed from economists on the bases that all people are rational decision makers who will weigh the cost and benefits when it comes to committing a crime, does the reward outweigh the risk and possible punishment (Alexandra Lysova Lecture 3). The theory of rational choice also looks at the perceived risk of a crime vs. the actual risk that committing the crime will have.
