Mobile Declaration of Independence: The Charges

As previously noted, the American Declaration of Independence is largely a collection of charges against the King of Great Britain, justifying dissolution of the political bonds between Britain and the 13 American colonies. In that original post, I challenged us to develop a Mobile Declaration of Independence and to do so by August 2.

Last week, I proposed that our new Mobile Declaration of Independence focus on freedom from the oppression which I coined as “Big Bell Dogma.”

This week, I’d like to focus on the list of charges to be brought against this oppressor in justifying our claim of independence.

Depending on how you count them, the original Declaration included somewhere between 18 and 27 charges. By my quick analysis, they are grouped into roughly six categories:

  • Refusal to pass new laws
  • Lack of representation by legislature
  • Blocked immigration
  • Obstruction of justice
  • Harrassment by officers and soldiers
  • Waging a brutal war against the citizens of the American colonies

Rather than listing specific offenses of the “Big Bell Dogma” (since each of us could probably develop our own lengthy, but unique list), I propose that we list the broad categories of offenses. Here are the ones I propose:

What do you think? Does this cover the types of offenses by the “Big Bell Dogma” against mobility against which we must declare our freedom?
