You are just choosing not to believe

You are choosing to not believe in natural rights, regardless of how compelling the proofs are.

I can "choose" to believe that 1+1 does not equal 2.

That doesn't make it not so.

It sounds like you're a bit (depressed?) for some reason, and this is affecting your ability to let the arguments sink in.

I can't say that for sure - or why - but no, you're *choosing* to live in a depressing reality where we are mere animals, regardless of all the evidence to the contrary.

You are choosing to live in a world, where the ultimate reality is one where those with the most amount of dominance can "force" you to accept that 1+1=4 (ala Winston Smith).

But that does not make it true.

Human beings are creatures of choice. Choose wisely! (or try like hell lol)
