Equality In The Declaration Of Independence Sayings By Yuval Noah Harari: Both the Code of Hammurabi and the American Declaration of Independence claim to outline universal Both the Code of Hammurabi and the American Declaration of Independence claim to outline universal and eternal principles of justice, but according to the Americans all people are equal, whereas according to the Babylonians people are decidedly unequal.
