this truth self-evident, rights
I hope I do not need to identify the source of these words.
But I will.
They are from the 2nd sentence of the Declaration of Independence.
The sentence reads, “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.”
For the few words in this sentence, I have always been amazed at how much it says.
The point I want to make is the author’s use of the terms SELF EVIDENT and UNALIENABLE.
For such a short sentence, there is not much wiggle room.
Yet somehow, someway some people don’t get it.
I guess for some people some things are more self evident than others.
And somehow, less unalienable.
I don’t understand it myself.
But there we are.
