  1. Interesting. The elephant in the room is, how do you ground these rights? We see what happens when a key EU Country (Germany) grounds human rights based on a Darwinian "Survival of the fittest," model.

    It is certainly valuable to examine evidence for the best ways to impact these so-called rights. And to be broad-based in the approach. But history is replete with examples of governments feeling compelled to strip away these human rights. And in most cases it was because these governments thought they were granting these human rights rather then recognizing that if these rights were objective, they must come from a creator of humans not governors.

    This is why the preamble to the Declaration of Independence has it right (no pun intended).
