The self-evident truths in the second paragraph deal with natural rights. This includes that all men are created equal and have a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
<span>What is the meaning of 'We hold these truths to be self evident'?This is the beginning of the most famous line from the Declaration of Independence. The writers of the Declaration are claiming that "all men are created equal" and "endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights." When the term "self-evident" is used, it means that the human rights require no defense because their virtue is unquestionable.</span><span>Who wrote this document we hold these Truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal?Answer: Filippo Mazzei, a Tuscan physician, fought alongside Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry during the American Revolution. Mazzei drew up a plan to capture the British in New York by cutting off their sea escape, and convinced France to help the American colonists financially and militarily in their struggle against British rule. He also inspired the Jeffersonian phrase: "All men are created equal" when he wrote "All men are by nature equally free and independent." http://www.niaf.org/research/contribution.asp (from NAF)</span><span>What is the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence?The second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence is as follows:. 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, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to 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 and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown 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. --Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.. (Please note that the second paragraph is referred to as the "Preamble" to the Declaration. The first paragraph is called the "Introduction". This is confusing because the "Preamble" to the US Constitution is the first paragraph, not the second.)</span><span>What truths did the colonists say were self evident? </span>
