Thomas Stone is representative of a culture that advocated a belief in "inalienable rights" and the pursuit of freedom for white, propertied, males, while at the same time denying rights and freedom to people of color and to women. This paradox solidified a course of American history in which all people did not, in fact, have the same rights and freedoms as Thomas Stone and the 55 other men who signed the Declaration of Independence.
