So entstehen aus den Erfahrungen der Denker dieser Zeit philosophische Überlegungen, in denen das „divine correct“ als Herrschaftskonzept immer mehr angezweifelt wird. Mit dieser Konzeption rivalisiert die Vertragstheorie als neues Herrschaftsmodell und setzt sich in den folgenden Jahrhunderten durch. Damit begründet der Kontraktualismus das heutige Verständnis der Staatsorganisation. Die britischen Kolonien in Amerika, in denen diese Überlegungen zur Unabhängigkeit führen, sind neben der französischen Revolution das prominenteste Beispiel dafür. Allerdings eben mit der Eigenheit, dass aus den britischen Kolonien kein veränderter, sondern ein neuer Staat hervorgeht. In diesem Sinne ist auch die Arbeit angelegt. Der Begriff „Staatsgründung“ wird hier wörtlich verstanden und thematisiert deshalb das Beispiel der Vereinigten Staaten.
Thomas Jefferson, der Verfasser der „Declaration of Independence” , schreibt im Jahr 1825 rückblickend in einem short, dass es sein Ziel conflict „not to determine new rules, or new arguments, by no means sooner than considered, no longer in simple terms to claim issues which had by no means been acknowledged prior to; yet to put prior to mankind the common-sense of the topic, in phrases so simple and enterprise as to command their assent.” was once aber ist dieser „common experience of the topic” und wichtiger; welchen Ideen liegt er zugrunde? Welche Ideenkonzepte sind bereits so stark zu dieser Zeit verbreitet und anerkannt, dass sie ausgehend von einem Gemeinsinn in eine Erhebung resultieren? Diese Ideen liegen unterschiedlichen Denkern zugrunde, die sich hauptsächlich auf die Gelehrten des angelsächsischen Raumes beziehen.
