UNALIENABLE. Incapable of

UNALIENABLE. Incapable of being transferred. Things which are not in commerce, as, public roads, are in their nature unalienable. Some things are unalienable in consequence of particular provisions of the law forbidding their sale or transfer; as, pensions granted by the government. The natural rights of life and liberty are unalienable.

So if you can transfer the right i.e. sell yourself into slavery, your rights are not unalienable, by definition. Nothing in anarchy prevents such a thing. Furthermore, nothing secures the unalienable rights in the bill of rights from being transferred/forfeited via contract.
