hello I am in need of six short essays, one for each of the six sections below. Each section needs to be about 150-200 words. There are six sections so entire thing would be between 800-1200 words.
1. The central sentence from the Declaration is the start of the second paragraph: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” Consider the various parts of this statement and how they actually apply to the political institutions of our country.
A. What did Jefferson intend by the statement that “all men are created equal?” Based on Jefferson’s own life and on the government that was later established, which kinds of people do you think he meant by all men? Which kinds of people were not included in this statement? Are there any people in the country today who you think are still not treated as equal? If so, in what ways are they not equal?
B. Jefferson, by stating that men are created equal, seems to suggest that our equality and our rights come from a creator, a god. Do you think that these rights should be considered as coming from god; if so, do you think that the exercise of our rights should depend on some religious or moral basis which is also derived from god? If you think that it is possible for rights and equality to be derived from some other source, without the need of a reference to a creator, where do our rights come from?
C. The basic rights Jefferson mentions are Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness. How do you understand these rights in your life? What does a right to Life entail? To whom do you think this right extends or does not extend? Can this right ever be taken away? What is the extent of a right to Liberty; that is, what liberties do people not have, what should they not be free to do?
D. In what ways should people be allowed to pursue happiness, and in what ways should people not be allowed to pursue their idea of happiness? Do all people have an equal right to pursue happiness today? If not, what factors might limit a person’s ability to pursue happiness, and what role, if any, do you think government should play in trying to guarantee an equal right to pursue happiness?
2. Jefferson goes on to state that Governments derive “their just powers from the consent of the governed.” How does the U. S. government ensure that it has the consent of the people in exercising its power? Do you think that the system of elections as practiced in this country adequately expresses the consent of the people?
