Magna Carta means The Great Charter it was a peace treaty ending revolution against an English king.
A copy of the Magna Carta’s first appearance was part of the Lord Mayor’s Show which parade. Magna Carta states how the government should treat its people. Also The Declaration of Independence states how the government should treat its people. Finally they will compare and contrast to see if they are similar in how they treat each other’s people. Magna Carta says that the government should treat its people to have different rights. One right that they would have is the right of a wealthy widow that would have centuries-long relevance.
It would guaranteed them church freedom. This means that the rich widows will have every right and freedom to be in that church. Another thing he says how the government should treat its people is by making sure of their safety. Taking care of your safety means you have to follow the rules. Even the king has to follow these rules for his safety. This is stating that it does not matter how old you are or how young you are everyone has rules that will keep them safe.
Finally it says that the government think they should treat its people with equal rights. It does not matter if you are rich and poor everyone is treated the same. This is saying that everyone is treated the same way and that they are not treated any different from anyone else. Therefore you wonder how the Declaration of Independence treats its people.The Declaration of Independence says that the government should treat its people with respect.
To be able to have liberty and the pursuit of happiness goes along with certain rights. This means that they will have independence, happiness, and treated fairly. Another thing the Declaration of Independence says the government should treat its people with equal rights. It states that all men will be created equal which means they will all have the right to vote. It does not matter your religion or anything because all men will be equal. The final thing the Declaration of Independence says that the government should treat its people with truth and self-evident. That is when finally women and men were told that everyone would be equal it does not matter if you a men or women. Overall you wonder if Magna Carta treats its people more fair then the Declaration of Independence does.
Magna Carta and The Declaration of Independence are similar and different but all in good way. They are similar because they both state that they have equal rights. Equal rights to men and women they state that it does not matter if you are rich or poor, or a men or a women everyone is treated the same. They are different because Magna Carta states that they need to follow rules for their safety and The Declaration of Independence never mention that they are caring for their peoples safety. One other thing they have in common is that they want their people to have is the right and freedom to vote. These are just a few things things they have in compare and contrast. The reason that were listed above about how Magna Carta’s government should treat its people and how The Declaration of Independence should treat its people were mostly the same reason. They both wanted the same thing for their people.
Which was equal rights for both men and women. It also wanted everyone to be happy and treated with respect. In closing they all
