What is grant of freedom called?

freedom!!!! when the government does it it is called a pardon.Answer:Freedom is not granted but rather taken. Too many times it is taken for granted but freedom granted is nothing more than an oxymoron. While pardons and even paroles may seem like freedom granted, it is more correct to view it as freedom acknowledged. Surely a man convicted who has either been pardoned or paroled has paid whatever price that would have or did take his freedom away to begin with but just because it was taken from him does not mean upon this mans newfound freedom it was granted by anyone other than his own being who will either enjoy that freedom or not. In medieval times there were legal documents that would "grant freedom" to serfs or even owners of shipwrecked salvage but this was a primitive time where people were willing to believe freedom was up to somebody else to grant and not simply there for the taking. Perhaps there are many now who believe the same but there are just as many who live their lives free with or without the permission of the "powers that be".


What does the declaration suggest is the relationship between a government and the people it governs?

The American Declaration of Independence not only suggests a particular relationship between government and governed; it out rightly declares what that relationship is or, rather, should be. Fundamentally, the relationship is consensual; that is, government rules over the governed only by the consent of those who are governed.


What does it mean for a government to exist by the consent of the governed?

The Founding Fathers adopted some then-novel theories of government, which had actually been around since the Athenian city-state of Ancient Greece. Rather than being a hereditary power handed down among powerful families (divine right of kings), philosophers such as John Locke saw government as a shared agreement among peoples of a nation (social contract). Locke said as much in his Essay concerning Human Understanding (circa 1690).The phrase "consent of the governed" in the Declaration of Independence is used to support the contention that a government can fail to be responsive to those it governs, often because it equates governing with absolute rule.
