What Are Unalienable Rights?

*** begin quote ***

I don’t think I’ve ever seen an expansive article about unalienable rights. We all seem to just refer to the Declaration of Independence and what Jefferson wrote, and then defer to it. But natural law and unalienable rights are where it all starts.

*** and ***

“Unalienable: incapable of being alienated, that is, sold and transferred.” Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, page 1523. One cannot sell, transfer or surrender unalienable rights.

*** and ***

Inalienable rights can be transferred, sold or surrendered if you give your consent. Inalienable rights are not bestowed by the Creator or inherent in humans. ”Persons” have inalienable rights, and the word “Person” is a legal term¹. Inalienable rights can be bestowed to persons by government, and can be likewise removed from persons by government. At times, government itself can be considered a “Person” in a legal sense. Most state constitutions recognize only inalienable rights.

*** and ***

* The Right of Life

* Right of Personal Security

* The Right of Labor

* Right to Acquire and Enjoy Property

* Right to Contract

* Right of Free Speech

* Right of Beliefs or Conscience

* Right of Personal Liberty

* Right to the Pursuit of Happiness

*** end quote ***

And, I always thought old Thom was just careless.
