One of President Biden’s recent actions was abolishing the previous administration’s 1776 Commission. But what was the 1776 Commission? The person who spearheaded the project spoke with The Epoch Times’ American Thought Leaders program about the commission and why it was created.

The 1776 Commission explained the importance of the ideas and principles inscribed in the Declaration of Independence, one of them being that all are created equal.

It also addressed concepts that challenged those principles, including slavery, fascism, and communism.

Another challenge is identity politics, the idea that society should be run based on a person’s race, gender, or other group identity.
