The fact is your rights aren't given to you by anybody. Not by the government, not by society, and not by the mythical sky deity of your choice. Your rights are inherent because they are the rights you have in the natural state of humanity.
Without a nation of laws created by men, there would be no "rights".
Anyone would be free to anything to anyone at anytime.
