Explain what you think the citizens of a nation might gain or lose through their liberty.

In Lecture 1, we explored how “liberty” was interpreted by the Founders of the American Constitution. These Founding Fathers were influenced by political philosophers who argued that liberty is always at risk, and because of that risk, liberty must be protected, not just by the leaders of a nation, but also by the citizens.

While our founding fathers realized government was necessary to protect the citizens from criminals and outsiders (Lecture 2, comments about the King of England), they were concerned with amount of power the government should be given. To ensure that the people maintained power, the first Ten (10) Amendments (also called: The Bill of Rights) were added.

For this week’s assignment, write a 500-750 word essay addressing each of the following questions:

  • What is liberty? Provide a definition and at least one example.
  • Why does it matter? Explain what you think the citizens of a nation might gain or lose through their liberty.
  • What is your personal responsibility to protect it? Provide examples of what you can do, what you should do, and what you must do.
  • In modern times, do you think Americans have gained/maintained liberty in the way the Founding Fathers described it in the Constitution? Why or why not?
