In colonial America, the citizens did not know exactly what they wanted for their government. The colonists knew they didn’t want their lives to be like they had been in England. They were open to ideas; they did not know what would work and what wouldn’t. The colonists knew that trial and error was the best idea at the time. The democratic and undemocratic features of colonial America were very apparent in that democracy as it was a work in progress.
Freedom of religion is another right that is very important. People have the right to practice their religion or not practice any religion. Freedom of religion makes living in the U.S. more comfortable due to the fact that in other countries everyone has to follow one religion. Freedom of protesting is another right that the first amendment grants us. Protests help people get together for a cause and even if it good or bad it should be allowed because we were given the right to protest.
Article 18 states that "Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance" (United Nations, 1948). Based on the constitutionality and dictates of the article which was also consented to by France, it is a direct violation of human rights. The article clearly states that "this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private" (United Nations, 1948). The phrase, "alone or in community with others and in public or private" is what is at play here. The French government is willing to observe the first part which is to allow for religion to be practiced alone or in private, but not the second part which is to allow the same religious rights and freedoms to be observed publicly.
Libertarianism is here and there blamed for being inflexible and narrow-minded, yet it is in truth simply an essential structure for social orders in which free people can live in peace, what Jefferson called "their own quest for industry and change." what The general public made by a libertarian system is the most powerful and inventive at any point seen on earth, the phenomenal advances in science, innovation, and way of life since the liberal transformation of the late eighteenth century. Libertarianism is additionally an inventive and dynamic system for action. Today it is statist thoughts that appear to be old and tired, while there is a blast of libertarian ideas that the public sees as innovative and new. Libertarianism has built up a structure for critical thinking, however, our comprehension of the elements of free and unfree social orders will keep on developing.
In American today, the people view their rights as one of the utmost important aspects of their lives. For example, they almost demand their freedom to worship as they choose. Although it is the people 's right to do this at times, it appears to be a bullying attitude. Our rights must suit our belief systems and cannot be varied away from them, or it would be against our rights. The people view freedom in America, as freedom of choice and not simply freedom as the Colonists did.
In Colonial America there was Democratic and Undemocratic features within a work in progress. A democratic feature from Document #1- Maryland’s Act of Toleration is Individual or Human Rights- Rights all people have to believe in any form of christianity shall from now on will be in any way troubled. A undemocratic feature from Plan of a Slave Ship- Document #5 is equality. Equality is the state of being equal, especially in in status, rights, and opportunities. Where there’s valued equality and where people are free from unreason.
I believe that the freedom of religion means that we have a right to choose to practice religion as long as we do not infringe the rights on others. The First Amendment prevents the law from interfering with religion. The main powers of the government are prohibited from intentionally interfering with the freedom of individuals to practice their religion. So basically this means that any practices that is considered sacred to religions can be protected. And when the time came of the law of free exercise principle came about was when the argument of it being used as excuses to the
I believe that we don’t completely uphold the principles of the Declaration of Independence. There is racism, broken rights, bullying, and so many horrible things that disobey the Declaration of Independence’s principles. However, there are also law abiding citizens who obey everything and have all their rights, then there are heroes, who dedicate their whole lives to making this into a completely good country that upholds every principle of the Declaration of Independence. There is still freedom of speech and we still have the right to be whatever religion we want without having to deal with people coming to our door and saying we are a traitor and that we should be executed. For example, I am agnostic and no one really bothers me about it, they still accept me for who I am except for the people who don’t and actually do see me as a traitor.
Being an American means defending your own rights to freedom of speech and to be free to be who you want to be. By being who you want to be means having the right to choose your own religion. It means that you are proud of your country to have its values of freedom to life, speech and liberty. You have the right to have your own ideas and beliefs and you are able to express them knowing that you have that kind of freedom. It means that you have the freedom to make your own choices in life even if it is to be successful or not you have the freedom of that choice and the freedom to life.
No one else owes you anything, not the government and not other taxpayers. You should care enough about your fellow citizens to not leech off of them and take the hard earned money that could be used for so many, better, more productive things. On the other hand although if by some set of bad circumstances you cannot support yourself for a legitimate reason you still should not be proud of just
