That should help you answer, since you seem to think, still, they come from govt because you keep mentioning "laws."
I'm not getting into philosophical debate with you on the derivation of inalienable rights.
Again I'll say, file suicide under "pursuit of happiness." If you don't like that, tough.
I keep mentioning laws, because no rights are protected without them.
Feel free to answer my question in the AJ thread when you get the time. It's far simpler than answering a question that has been debated for centuries.
