"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men and women are created equal, that they are endowed with certain unalienable Rights, and that chief among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

"That to secure these Rights, and in particular the last, Commercial Organisations are created to serve the People, deriving their just powers from the consent and free choice and will of the People."
