    The Declaration of the rights of Man and Citizen means to set out basic human rights that governments may not overlook. It guaranteed freedom of thought, speech, religion, security, and property, and it put limits on the power of government.

    Is this good enough to explain what the declaration of the rights of Man and Citizen means. Also if my sentences do not seem to make sense, then don't mind changing them, thanks.

    Your answer is good, although I'm not sure this Declaration guarantees freedom of religion.

    okay, thanks. I'll leave religion out.
