It's today! (so google says)

And this section of the forum has been dead too long!

Now I never really learned much about the Magna Carta at school, being English, so do any Americans wanna come here and tell me what it was all about?

I understand it is a big deal regarding freedoms, liberties, self-evident truths and mob justice

Magna carta 1215--> French Revolution 1789 --> Marxism (The Communist Manifesto)  1848 --> Russian Revolution 1917 --> Soviet union 1922 --> Collapse of Soviet union 1991.

Glorious Freedom in Russia ever since :D

All it took was this small alteration in the relationship between rulers and those ruled.

Give them a finger and they take the whole arm....

I believe it was basically a decleration of independence for England.

I don't really give a crap about it though, that was 800 years ago....
It was fun while it lasted.

Not quite, it was more to do with free peasants and nobles securing their privileges and personal liberties against a tyrant king, that included marcher lords in Wales and Anglo-Norman landholders under direct royal authority outside of England (such as the pale in Ireland and various marches in Scotland) although not throughout the extended Angevin empire. Magna Carta wasn't quite the mass emancipation text that its often been portrayed as in British popular history, but it has a significant role in the origin of parliamentary democracy and thus is significant on a global scale.
