The Rights of man are granted by nature or nature’s God, by their nature they may be deprived by force, but their proper exercise is not force, and can never restrict the rights of another. Any gift given freely to one at the cost of another, is not a right, it is a gift and a blessing. Any gift given by one to another at the unwilling expense of a third, is not a blessing, it is a stolen thing used to curry favor, and should be shunned.
