Individual rights were included in the constitution because:


A. Conflicts between individuals and the government remained unsolved.

B. The people demanded a listing of rights


C. The distinction between civil rights and civil liberties had to be made.


D. People did not want the government to have any authority over them.

I'm stuck between B and C?

    I believe that B is the best answer. The original Constitution did not include a Bill of Rights. The first ten amendments were added to provide these rights demanded by many people.
