A fundamental right is one which a woman/man - when stripped of it - finds her/himself in a state of war with her/his neighbor and/or society/government (to use Lockean terms).

hmmmm....how about this:  a right given by God.

What if you don't believe in God?  ???

:D  It's objective.  If I donít believe a person has a right to not be enslaved, does their right go away?

Objectivity and coming from God are two very different things.  :)


All I'm saying is that God's existence is not conditioned on your believing in Him.  :)

That's all well and good, but it's not an explanation of fundamental rights that everyone can buy into.  ;)

Oh, well, people don't have to buy into it.  If it's true, it's true.  ;)

Doesn't make it useful.  :P

I don't know, the truth is often useful.  :P

I'm sure there's a non-religious explanation of what qualifies as fundamental rights.  ::)

Have fun.

Wait...  I thought she was kidding?  ???

Oh, now I'm confused too.  >:(

Eh, for someone whom I thought was relatively new she was dead-on with his views on abortion.

:::scuttles off in confusion:::

Yeah, I'm thou.  Did you see the video of my kid I posted on FB?  If not, I'll send you a link 'cause I took it down.

Hey, if you're Thou then who's that in your avatar?

Wait, Thou's a guy, right?  ???

I don't know.  Type in "mexican girl" in a google image search.  She should come up on the first page.

Huh.  Why "mexican girl"?

because they're brown.

don't use quotes when you do the search.  just search:

mexican girl
