Track Change: A Re-Declaration of Independence

Please see attached document for revision.  Changes are being tracked, but there is much yet to be done. Most sections merit total translation; translations are offered in bold blood.

*asterisks indicate something to look more closely at. There is no corresponding asterisk in this document, however. The asterisk, instead, corresponds to the actual experience of investigating the matter (whatever your personal research may—or may not—consist of).

IN CONGRESSion, JULY 4, 1776 2012

The unanimous anonymous Declaration of the thirteen approximately 61

united Divided States of America

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

Once upon a time, it becomes necessary for the people to become whole.  You see, we have come to believe that we are separate (from God/Nature).

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, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

We forgot that truth is self-evident: that we are equal, that we are alive, and that we have a choice. — Power  is obtained by those who give it, — That whenever Power becomes destructive, we deserve to restore it. (But make sure you know who/what/when/where/ why/how you are working).  Because when a misguided pseudo-purpose that disconnects us from our innate capacity becomes so ingrained in society that we no longer recognize ourselves for who we are, in fact we encourage self-denial, offer blatant rewards— Such has been the suffering of humankind, and we’ve caught ourselves red-handed. If we are to be restored, we must be candid.  Here’s what we did:

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

We have ignored natural law*.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

We have neglected ourselves.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

We have forced ourselves on each other.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

We have worn each others shoes.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

Manly firmness?

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

We have cultivated vulnerability.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

We have made it hard to breathe.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

We have self-obstructed.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

We have sold out.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

We have devoured ourselves.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

We have refused to relax.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

We have insisted upon fighting.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

We have aligned ourselves with a fictitious System*; allowing its pretentious legislation:

  • Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us.
  • Protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States.
  • Cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world.
  • Imposing Taxes on us without our Consent.
  • Depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury.
  • Transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offenses.
  • Abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighboring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies.
  • Taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments.
  • Suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

We have turned against each other.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

We have devastated.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

We are at this time deploying millions of our loved ones to complete the works of the System*.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

We have sacrificed our dreams.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

We have hung ourselves on ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

At every point, a small voice within has cried out for mercy.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

It’s not like we have failed completely. We have warned , reminded, appealed, and conjured. We have tried to instill justice and consanguinity.  We must be realistic.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

So here we are. 

— John Hancock
