+ - We hold these truths to be self-evident

Submitted by Tijaska
Tijaska (740114) writes "I once read a document that started:

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

"That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."

Excuse my ignorance, but how do the People exercise their right to alter or abolish a Government that becomes destructive of their rights if the Government denies them the right to know that it is doing these things, and persecutes/prosecutes any who dare reveal these transgressions?"
