Oh? For humans only?

"Human rights are an invention of human intelligence, and exist for all who understand them and respect them, and are assumed to exist by default for those who have yet to articulate their personal stand on the subject."

Walk up to a bear and take her cubs. what happens and why? How can they even get upset if they aren't human and don't understand what's rightfully theirs? that's truly interesting...

rights stem from ownership. Ownership is not an "invention of human intelligence".

i didn't realize we were separating rights based on species in this discussion. This discussion was about natural rights and how "they do or do not exist". So far, you say they exist. so do i. we are in agreement...

I use Blue Wave, but don't expect one of THEIR silly taglines.
