    No, that would be South America. But really the correct answer is Antarctica, though the water is in frozen form.

    Actually it is. Founded both in Universal Deceleration of Human Rights, and in the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights

    I would think that a stable cardboard box is about what might be available on human rights. I looked at a European detention center for African boat people. Cardboard box, is what human rights give you.

    So what? Last time I checked we signed the UNDHR. Many of the ideas that animated the movement for human rights were founded after WW2.

    Should we pay for water?

    If we want clean running water, then yes we absolutely should pay for it. If not, then no, you can go to a creek and get some in a bucket.

    the constitution deals in natural rights, and [privledges and immunites]....which are civil rights.

    Government creates civl rights....

    Natural rights are not from goverment. Nothing can be a right, which lays a cost or burden on one citizen to give to another citizen...

    You can still have a "right" and have it be provided by the state. Natural rights are natural in the sense of human nature. Human rights are the construct of men and the state provides these to all citizens equally.
