“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.” (Declaration of Independence 1776)
240 years have passed after the people of United States of America (USA) declared independence from the British rulers on 4th July 1776. The ‘Declaration of Independence’ is a well appreciated document.
During these two and half centuries, US has become the most powerful nation in the world. The collapse of the European powers like Britain, France, Germany etc. in the II world war saw the unprecedented rise of US, which was comparatively safe from the scourge of war. The collapse of USSR in the 1980s resulted in the unipolar power of capitalists headed by US.
US has travelled much back from its Declaration of Independence. It became a threat to many independent countries. Its quest for world domination has created conflicts in many countries. Its military attacks and intervention in Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq and oher middle east countries have given rise to terrorist forces, which has become a threat to the people all over the world.
If world peace is to be achieved, US has to change its policy of world domination and function with the Declaration of Independence and democratic principles, which of course, the common people of US also want.
Greetings to the people of US on 240th anniversary of freedom of their country from British colonialists!
