What liberal principles were asserted when the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen was declared by the National Assembly in August 1789?
Do you agree this is what it is asking? --The rights to "liberty, property, security, and resistance to oppression" and the rights to freedom of speech and of the press were guaranteed. The document asserted the equality of men and the sovereignty of the people, on whom the law should rest, to whom officials should be responsible, and by whom finances should be controlled.
