Declaration of Independence

Political Theory of Freedom:

Law is the organized defense of the natural rights of individuals; it is to protect persons, liberties, and properties, and to cause justice to reign over all.  The law must seek not to provide benefit to any group or individual by imposing loss or disadvantage to other groups or individuals, but must seek only to provide to individuals protection and justice from the damage caused by others.  Laws of Nature entitle the freewill of Men.  It is only by contract that a delegation of powers can be given to a presiding group to secure and protect the unalienable Rights of individuals.  Thus, all powers of government and law come from the individual and are bound by contract. 

As stated in the Declaration of Independence: “We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness—That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed”.
