You scream and rant about "rights" that all people have imbued in them simply by being born. There is only one right that you have at any one time
and that is the right to resist the mandate of the existing law (order).
Before responding to this, I am compelled to quote you yet again:
These "inalienable" rights you like to trumpet aren't imbued upon you simply because you are a born human being - that's the most SINGULAR
CONCEITED, ARROGANT statement made, next to "We are the only life in the universe".
It is your own conceit that undermines your own argument. You wish to dismiss the assertion that all people are born with rights that are inherent
and inalienable, but will concede that all people have the right to resist "the mandate of existing law". Your conceit lies in the fact that you
willfully ignore, for example, The Constitution for the United States of America, which stands as the Supreme Law of the Land, and has placed clear
and undeniable mandates, not upon the people, but the government Ordained by the People to serve the People.
Further, there is no comparison between those who assert "we are the only life in the universe" and those who assert what rights are inalienable.
Even worse, you further argue that only might makes right, and while Natural Law often requires the use of force, indeed the implementation of Justice
requires the use of force, it is your conceit that people only have rights due to the force others used to grant these rights. That there are those
who would clearly abrogate and derogate the rights of others does not serve as evidence that inalienable rights are non-existent, but rather serves as
evidence that tyranny does indeed exist, and it is your conceit to argue in favor of tyranny over freedom. After all, all tyrants gain their power
through the same force you claim grants rights. Indeed, a so called benign tyrant may deign to "grant" rights, but this is merely their conceit
thrust upon the ignorance of people who accept such conceit.
Your most egregious conceit is your fear mongering where you clearly hope to convince people that assertions of rights almost always come with certain
death and/or imprisonment. You dismiss the right to speech, and the right to ones own beliefs but then turn around and suggest one has the right to
resist and oppressor. Of course, it would be difficult to resist this oppressor without relying upon speech and belief, but this is a merely a
quibble with one who is obviously selling tyranny as rightful and just, and that order could not possibly exist among the self governed, and that
conceit is the most odious of all.
