In a little less than a month, our nation will recognize Independence Day. But this year, it is harder to recognize some of the core aspects of that independence our forebears declared so long ago.

Many people can recite one of the introductory phrases of the Declaration of Independence: “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.”
