Enlightenment had a huge impact on the United States Constitution. Enlightenment was founded on the belief in rationalism. It rejected traditional, social, political, and religious ideas. John Locke was one of the national leaders that supported enlightenment, because he believed in sovereignty, liberty, and equality of all men.
Creating a new nation was a huge responsibility, and it faced many problems. The national leaders all had different ideas on how they wanted to run their state. It was a huge obstacle for everyone to come together, and create a valid constitution that everyone agreed upon.
Each state and national leader had to abandon their own personal agenda, and come together as one nation. It was a very uncomfortable time to create a constitution under the pressures of war.
Enlightenment was the greatest influence that ignited the national leaders to create the United States Constitution. The national leaders were also aware that the country needed to be governed, and they needed a document that would unite everyone by loyalty.
The desire to get away from British domination, and control was a major reason the constitution was created. The constitution was based off of equality, and justice for every man. It also gave the people the power over the government. The people gave the state, and the government equal powers so that one would not be more dominant than the other.
The people created the United States Constitution so that they would not be plagued with unfair taxes, and had the right to own their own land.
