Declaration of Independence

Importance

The declaration of Independence was most important in setting out the outline of the American Revolution and making a basis for the people involved.

Important parts:

The “unalienable,” or more commonly, “inalienable rights” are those you cannot give up even if you want to and consent. Unlike other alienable rights that you can consent to transfer or waive. The colonists wanted to keep these wants that could be given up as men of a free country.


However it is ironic that the people who wrote the document and supported it still believed they needed slavery. They insists on being free men and having the rights that the British have and rule over themselves but they say that the black men are not even men. In the Declaration of Independence they describe men of power. men who owned land, and of course white men.


All parts of the document exercise the rights the colonists thought they deserved.
