In my vanity, I occasionally go through my site meter and see where people who come to this page live. When I do this, I can also see where they are coming from to get here. Lately, I have noticed a number of hit coming from the google search string "what are inelienable rights."
On the one hand, I feel bad that I haven't had a good philosophical post on human rights in a while, on the other, that's because I am working on a really big job at the moment and have little time.
So I'd like to kick that question back at you. What are inalienable rights? What does that phrase mean to you? Extra points (not that the points actually mean anything) if you can tell me, what is the most important inalienable right to you? Tough question, as inalienable implies that any right under that heading is of critical importance. Harder still, because so many of them are interconnected.
Here is my first post, that discusses what I think is possibly the most essential of human rights, the rights to make decisions about one's own body. . .
Please, don't embarrass me by leaving this thread empty. Click on the comments and leave one, anon if you feel the need. Uber-bonus points if you want to email me with an idea for a post on this topic - again, the points are, well, pointless, but I'll really appreciate it. . .
