IN CONGRESS, JULY

4, 1776

4.;

WH EN 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 sep-
arate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent re-
spect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the
,] 'separation.... 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, deriv-
ing 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 and 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 an 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....
