Question

“A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.”

Which most accurately assesses the rationale the excerpt offers to support the argument for American independence?

a. The rationale is economic in nature; it argues that any leader who writes laws that govern colonists is corrupt and incapable of fairly representing the needs of those colonists.

b. The rationale is social in nature; it argues that a leader of a distant land lacks the day-to-day knowledge necessary to make effective decisions about the needs of colonists.

c. The rationale is religious in nature; it argues that a leader who attempts to impose his religion upon colonial subjects is an oppressor of democracy

d. The rationale is political in nature; it argues that a leader motivated by personal interests does not possess the characteristics necessary to properly represent the natural rights of others.
