as the “rights of liberty, private property, the inviolability of the person and resistance tooppression”. The article stated that all citizens were equal before the law and have the right toparticipate in legislation either directly or indirectly and citizens were free to access anyposition and offices (article 6). The article gave freedom of religion and speech (articles 10and 11 respectively) which are within the bounds of public law and order. Article 7 stated thatno one was to be arrested without a judicial order. The article was formulated by majorthinkers of the French enlightenment as an attack on the pre-revolutionary monarchicalregimes. Equality and judicial systems were insisted to take over the system of privileges thatconstituted the old regime, and protect the citizens from abuse of kings and theiradministrations. The Declaration of Right of Man and of Citizen could be extended to alsoinclude both social and political democracy.Freedom is a prime ingredient in human life. Every human being will always fight toprotect their freedom no matter the situation. Everybody wants to be liberal, free to think andinteract with the environment. The freedom and independence most nations in the world areenjoying today is because some people fought or worked for it (especially during thecivilization period).

The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
