Approved by the National Assembly of France, August 26, The representatives of the French people, organized as a National Assembly, believing that the ignorance, neglect, or contempt of the rights of man are the sole cause of public calamities and of the corruption of governments, have determined to set forth in a solemn declaration the natural, unalienable, and sacred rights of man, in order that this declaration, being constantly before all the members of the Social body, shall remind them continually of their rights and duties; in order that the acts of the legislative power, as well as those of the executive power, may be compared at any moment with the objects and purposes of all political institutions and may thus be more respected, and, lastly, in order that the grievances of the citizens, based hereafter upon simple and incontestable principles, shall tend to the maintenance of the constitution and redound to the happiness of all. Therefore the National Assembly recognizes and proclaims, in the presence and under the auspices of the Supreme Being, the following rights of man and of the citizen:. Men are born and remain free and equal in rights.
It became the basis for a nation of free individuals protected equally by the law. It is included in the beginning of the constitutions of both the Fourth French Republic and Fifth Republic and is still current. Inspired by the Enlightenment philosophers, the Declaration was a core statement of the values of the French Revolution and had a major impact on the development of popular conceptions of individual liberty and democracy in Europe and worldwide. The content of the document emerged largely from the ideals of the Enlightenment. The last article of the Declaration of the Rights of Man and the Citizen was adopted on the 26 of August by the National Constituent Assembly , during the period of the French Revolution, as the first step toward writing a constitution for France. The draft was later modified during the debates. A second and lengthier declaration, known as the Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen of , was written in but never formally adopted.
The inspiration and content of the document emerged largely from the ideals of the American Revolution. The spirit of secular natural law rests at the foundations of the Declaration. Unlike traditional natural law theory, secular natural law does not draw from religious doctrine or authority. The document defines a single set of individual and collective rights for all men. Correspondingly, the role of government, carried on by elected representatives, is to recognize and secure these rights.

The French Revolution pp Cite as. The Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen was a product of both theory and fact. The National Assembly interrupted its consideration of these principles to take account, between August 4 and 11, of the fact of the peasant revolution, and when they returned to vote the following articles between August 20 and 26, they composed and arranged them, as Georges Lefebvre has shown unforgettably, in awareness of the old regime that they were combating and of material interests and political considerations in the new one that they were shaping.
Стратмор улыбнулся, не разжимая губ. - Вы читаете мои мысли, мисс Флетчер. Сьюзан Флетчер словно была рождена для тайных поисков в Интернете. Год назад высокопоставленный сотрудник аппарата Белого дома начал получать электронные письма с угрозами, отправляемые с некоего анонимного адреса. АНБ поручили разыскать отправителя. Хотя агентство имело возможность потребовать от переадресующей компании открыть ему имя этого клиента, оно решило прибегнуть к более изощренному методу - следящему устройству. Фактически Сьюзан создала программу-маяк направленного действия, замаскированный под элемент электронной почты.
Его обстановка напоминала домашнюю - мягкий ковер, высокотехнологичная звуковая система, холодильник, полный напитков и всяческой еды, маленькая кухня и даже баскетбольное кольцо. В отношении шифровалки в АНБ сложилась своеобразная философия. Нет смысла вбухивать миллиарды долларов в дешифровальный компьютер и одновременно экономить на тех, кто работает на этой превосходной технике. Сьюзан скинула туфли на низких каблуках от Сальваторе Феррагамо и блаженно погрузила обтянутые чулками ноги в густой шерстяной ковер.
Нуда, конечно… С удовольствием. Беккер достал блокнот. - Итак, начнем с утра.
В задней части комнаты Сьюзан Флетчер отчаянно пыталась совладать с охватившим ее чувством невыносимого одиночества. Она тихо плакала, закрыв. В ушах у нее раздавался непрекращающийся звон, а все тело словно онемело.
