Magna Carta, signed in 1215 at Runnymede, was the first attempt to legally limit a king’s powers. John shrewdly acceded to clearly defined responsibilities, but the charter was more important as a symbol to future generations than as an actual instrument.

Enlightenment

System-building was a defining characteristic: Diderot’s Encyclopèdie, condensing all knowledge into 28 volumes, was an early manifestation. Other key works include Rousseau’s Social Contract and the US Declaration of Independence. Adam Smith, then Karl Marx and Sigmund Freud, attempted to apply scientific laws to human affairs. The Terror, Stalin’s Purges and the Holocaust have all been pinned on Enlightenment values, but so have Civil Rights, Abolitionism and Universal Suffrage.

The Declaration of Independence

Anger over colonial taxes (alongside higher concerns over representation) inspired the Boston Tea Party of 1773, with repercussions that soon led to the Battles of Lexington and Concord. Boston came under siege, and war broke out in earnest. After a year of this, the Continental Congress, governing body of Britain’s American colonies, decided independence was the only answer. Thirteen dependencies formally seceded in a document signed on 2 July 1776.
