Both Thomas Paine and Thomas Jefferson like many of the founding fathers of America share a ideology concerning independence and freedom in general. Although the two were notably talented writers, the difference in their arguments was their respective deliveries, writing styles, and their timing.

Firstly, it is important to address the issue of Native Americans. John Marshall recognizes them as a distinct community in the Supreme Court Decision of Worcester v Georgia, saying that they occupy their “own territory, with boundaries accurately described, in which the laws of Georgia can
Many looked to violence and fleeing, which solved nothing and lead to even more prejudice. Others looked towards their emerging leader and philosophies such as nonviolence in order to achieve their goals. Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr. were both fantastic leaders who got the most out of their peers in order to gain their equality. While some people may believe things like
Roman empire has been one of the most powerful and successful empire throughout the world history so defeat in the battle against them and being of the part of their empire were almost inevitable. Lands of that empire spread in South Europe, partly West Europe, near east and north Africa. As a normal procedure, their culture, customs, language and so many other things that belong to them had to be adopted by people of lands which were captured by Romans. It is called romanization.

Everyone wants to be free and independent from others. Freedom is the right to do what one wants, live where he wants, eat what he wants, learns what he wants and chooses the religion in which he believes, without ignoring or harming other rights.

For the sake of successful functioning of any democratic system people have to be able to and should be allowed to form their own ideas. One must be able to receive many different ideas and information from many sources, reflecting many different perspectives, before being able to see the truth.

Freedom of expression is not only indispensible for each individual’s self-fulfilment but it also constitutes one of the essential premises of a democratic society and one of the elementary conditions for its progress
A Victory for Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness Preceding the Revolutionary War the colonists were thought to be underdogs; however, they were a force to be reckoned with. Victory wasn’t easy but it wasn’t impossible either. The Thirteen colonies had good fortune in the fact that there were many skilled leaders among them. The leaders allowed American armies to learn military tactics and form foreign interventions. Despite the disorganization of the union, (most) colonists came together as one to fight.
While the variety of texts and media studied present a lot of different messages and truths about different topics, but the underlining truth for all of pieces is that, a person should fight against the strident circumstances in order to get the basic human rights and live a pleasant life.
