Philisophical Question

I’m feeling very philisophical these days and I saw this question the other day.

Where do you think our rights come from?

Are they unalienable rights endowed by our creator?

Are they inherent in man because of our nature?

Do they come straight from the Constitution and our bill of rights?

Do they come from our elected officials?

I’m gonna have to go SP here and say all of them. Even if our creator is inanimate, it certainly set the conditions that we live in today. Most religious people will go alot further and say that God has bestowed rights that we must defend.

We exist and we all have purpose in life so therefore we should have the right to live for that purpose. That is really the secular, Libertarian concept.

The constitution certainly has a big say in how we live our lives and the rights that we have which nobody else in world has.

And our government certainly sets the rules and defines most of our rights. I can’t just sit home and smoke a joint. Apparently I have a right to health care (at least until next Tuesday hopefully.)

We have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I’m really happy we have them wherever they came from.

    They don’t come from our creator, because people had never had the rights that we now have and most still don’t. Plus we have no creator. So throw that one out. We have rights because someone wrote it down on some paper 235 years ago. That’s why. Nothing more, nothing less.
