    Declaration of Independence research paper

    Independence is a key concept for any state that attempts to pave its way in the world-historical development. Naturally, in such a situation the declaration of independence by the US seems to be practically inevitable. Anyway, in my opinion, the declaration of independence by the US is a key condition of its further development and progress.

Colonization in its turn can be considered as the extension of an even more disgraceful spot in the human history, namely slavery. The process of colonization was no doubt the synonym of violence. It is very difficult to trace the early roots of the slavery.
