Order-Liberty Tension

1. What is the Order-Liberty Tension? There have been various attempts to resolve this tension. Describe one: the U.S. Constitution of 1789.

2. It can be argued that the apparently clear promise of the 14th Amendment that the Federal government was to be the guarantor of individual rights in the states has never been fully realized. Why? Discuss fully.

3. Explain how the Preamble to the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, the Emancipation Proclamation and the Gettysburg Address were instrumental to the formulation, passage and ratification of the 14th Amendment
