The ill minded should not be the cause of the abiding citizens of America to lose their rights. The second amendment (the right to bear arms) was within the first 10 amendments to be put into our Bill of Rights. As the supreme court stated, the right to bear arms belongs completely to those as individuals. The purpose of the second amendment to be made was to make sure that the government couldn’t unarm our militias and make federal standing armies. When argued that the Second Amendment is purely to keep from disarming the state militias can not be entirely true, for it is said in the last half of the Amendment itself “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”.
The Magna Carta, signed in 1215, mainly secured liberties for England’s elite classes, but it has helped the fundamental principles of common law in constitutions around the world. The Magna Carta's influence on the constitution allowed specific rights from it be included in the US Constitution's Bill of Rights. An example of this would be the similarities between the Magna Carta's thirty ninth clause and the Bill of Rights seventh and fifth amendment. “No free man shall be seized or imprisoned … except by the lawful judgement of his equals or by the law of the land” (Magna Carta, clause 39).This clause refers to the guarantee that courts will
Benjamin Henry Latrobe: The Man Who Built America, Above & Below Most know Benjamin Henry Latrobe as America’s first professional architect, and the designer of the US Capitol.

If Thomas Paine didn’t propose “Common Sense”, most likely the declaration of independence wouldn’t be signed, which may lead to America not having their own freedom. In addition, throughout the pamphlet, he condemned monarchy and encouraged democracy instead. The colonists may not have an equal voice towards social issues if they still followed monarchy after the declaration of independence was signed. Thus, the foundation that made people to speak up for independence was the pamphlet. The more voices citizens have about their freedom against the British, the more powerful patriotism will be.
Except for the opening song, Alexander Hamilton which surmises his life and is sung by most of the cast. The first act follows Alexander from 1776 till George Washington hires him as Treasury Secretary. The second act picks up in 1789 when Thomas Jefferson came home from France to plead with the President for help in the French Revolution. The second act ends with Hamilton’s death and the work Eliza Hamilton did to preserve his memory and ensure his story would be told. Miranda first decided upon a rap/hip hop musical for the life of Alexander Hamilton after reading Ron Chernow’s biography in 2008, “late in the summer of 2008 Lin told me he wanted to write a hip- hop concept album about the life of Alexander Hamilton”.

The Constitution was made not only to clarify but also to improve and make the Articles of Confederation more effective. The Articles of Confederation were created to establish a system, so the states could operate if they ever needed to defend themselves from a foreign enemy, but it also gave states a lot of independence which resulted in both complications and solutions to previous problems. Both documents were created by the same group of people yet the two had very significant differences. Some of the differences had to do with how they codified the law. The Articles of Confederation had a unicameral legislature and The Constitution established a bicameral system.
While the rules were limiting the full potential of its people, it is important to keep in mind that they did have food, shelter, and support from their brothers, so some of the more socialistic ideas might actually be contributory to a new society. In the novel it says “...everything which is not permitted by law is forbidden (31).”” Rules and laws should not tell people everything that they can do, they should tell them everything that they can't do. Laws in the United States are like this and Prometheus will probably make his new society based on many on the same principles that there is in the U.S.. Furthermore, the House of Vocations assigns people in the City the occupation that they do for their whole lifetime. Prometheus will allow them to choose their own job in the new society because it will allow them to be happier throughout their whole lives.
This principle is for the people because they wanted to feel safe, they wanted the power of choosing their representatives and they wanted to chose someone who can keep their promises and protect the rights of the citizens. The inalienable rights is the first Amendment in the bill of rights which consist on the people having the power of asking the government to change or make a new law. This principle was established because the people have the right to have a voice and speak or ask the government to change something they don't like. These three principles of the Constitution all have in common the power of the people because each one shows how the people wanted to have different places they can recruit and these three principles join together are like an absolute power against the government power. Another reason for these power was that the people wanted an equal
