Welcome to Freedom21

The ideas of governance on which America is founded represent, perhaps, man's greatest achievement. The idea that government must be empowered only by the consent of the governed, is the most powerful idea about governance ever conceived. At the end of the day, it is the idea, and the system of governance, that will guide all people to healthy, happy, and prosperous lives.

The mission of Freedom21 is to advance and promote
the principles of freedom at every level of government.


A collection of commentaries, thoughts, and ideas
on the issues we face in the
advancement and defense of the principles of freedom.

Principles of Freedom

Freedom21 Conference Resolution
July 9 - 12, 2000

WHEREAS individual freedom is among the highest of human aspirations; and

WHEREAS individuals bear the responsibility of exercising and defending freedom; and

WHEREAS freedom is defined differently by different societies; and

WHEREAS it is imperative that a campaign to advance the principles of freedom be constructed upon a solid foundation of mutual agreement, now

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the following principles of freedom be adopted by the Freedom 21 Conference, meeting in St. Louis, Missouri, July 9-12, 2000:

  1. People have inherent, natural, unalienable rights to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness - the foundations of sovereignty.
  2. Governments exist expressly to protect these rights.
  3. Governments derive power from the consent of the governed, to protect these rights.
  4. Public policies, which constrain people's rights, must be enacted only by representatives elected by the people.
  5. Constitutionally limited government is the best form of government.
  6. That government is best which governs least.
  7. No foreign government shall supersede the authority of the government of the United States of America.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that these principles be advanced through projects and programs of participating organizations, and by the activities of individuals who share the belief that these principles are the foundation of freedom.

DONE THIS DAY by the people assembled in St. Louis, Missouri as participants in the Freedom21 National Conference.
