Can anyone me?
using the excerpt from james otis’s the rights of the british colonies asserted and proved answer the following question.

" the sum of my argument is: that civil government is of god; that the administrators of it were originally the whole people; that they might have devolved it on whom they ; that this devolution is fiduciary, for the good of the whole; that by the british constitution this devolution is on the king, lords and commons, the supreme, sacred and uncontrollable legislative power not only in the realm but through the dominions; that by the abdication, the original compact was broken to pieces; that by the revolution it was renewed and more firmly established, and the rights and liberties of the subject in all parts of the dominions more fully explained and confirmed; that in consequence of this establishment and the acts of succession and union, his majesty george iii is rightful king and sovereign, and, with his parliament, the supreme legislative of great britain, france, and ireland, and the dominions thereto belonging; that this constitution is the most free one and by far the best now existing on earth; that by this constitution every man in the dominions is a free man; that no parts of his majesty's dominions can be taxed without their consent; that every part has a right to be represented in the supreme or some subordinate legislature; that the refusal of this would seem to be a contradiction in practice to the theory of the constitution; that the colonies are subordinate dominions and are now in such a state as to make it best for the good of the whole that they should not only be continued in the enjoyment of subordinate legislation but be also represented in some proportion to their number and estates in the grand legislature of the nation; that this would firmly unite all parts of the british empire in the greater peace and prosperity, and render it invulnerable and perpetual."

Inducements constitute an "undue influence" if they alter a potential subject’s decision-making processes, such that they do not appropriately weigh the risk-benefit relationship of the research.


Undue inducements are propositions that are so extremely attractive that they drive people to act in a way they ordinarily wouldn´t, or in a way that they would normally question on account of possible risks or underlying values.

Inducements are usually admissible, but sometimes they are undue, and the limit is difficult to be established. They become undue influence if they change potential subjects´ decision-making, undermining their capacity to properly weigh the risks and benefits of their participation in research.

229 years!


The U.S. Constitution is 229 years old today. On Sept. 17, 1787, our Founding Fathers signed the Constitution at Independence Hall in Philadelphia, forging a new government for the United States.
