I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
You'd be right, if what I was saying was "nature can't be expected to respect our rights". What I'm saying is that you have no natural rights, innate rights, or inherent rights. The only things you are guaranteed inherently are the laws of physics. something's not much a 'right', especially an innate one, when it can be taken away so easily. That sounds more like a privilege to me.
Unless of course my rights are granted to me by the country in which I reside. And then I get what THEY want to give me despite what I may want or what I feel is my 'right'. I can, of course, work to change their point of view as well. (hence the constant changes to the rights we have or don't have)
"If your opponent is of choleric temperament, seek to irritate him." - Sun Tzu
