Everyone is Born with Inalienable Rights Life Liberty Ownage of Property

The Purpose of the Goverment is to protect theses rights

The people have the right to revolt against an abusive government

Everyone is born with rights that belong to the ruler in return for protection

The Purpose of the Government was to keep Law and Order

People cannot be trusted and are born evil Therefore can't be trusted to govern

Today's Social Contract

A relationship between the government and the people, in which the people agree to follow the rules and if they do not then they are punished appropriately. The government must protect the natural rights, Life, Liberty, and Property and if they do not the people have the right to demolish it and create a new government.
