True story: Originally I was going to call Liberty Man 'The Spirit of 1776.' But later I changed him to Liberty Man (for reasons I can't quite divulge yet, although if you think about it they might be apparent already). I resurrected the name for this scene.

About which thing?

The declaration of independence is a document summarizing the just reasons for going to war. Not a light thing for those who also believe in the stated rights. By going to war the rights given by the creator are automatically suspended for the enemy, which is an example of one alienating himself from those very rights.

The Declaration of Independence is not a declaration of war. They were explaining why they believed they had the right to throw off British rule and establish their own government. Of course, they knew war would probably be the result, but they were not stating why they were going to war. They were stating why they wanted to be their own country, and why they thought they had every right to do so.

To be fair, I would say they knew that war would *certainly* be the result. It's not like there was any chance at all that the Brits were just going to send a nice card "Dear former colonies - Hey, heard about your new country, congrats on that, good luck and all, let us know if you need any help with anything, hope you enjoy the nice fruit and muffin basket we sent!" ;)
