44. I disagree with your conclusion.

Simply because rights did not pre-exist the Constitution does not mean people's government will cease to exist. I don't see how viewing rights as social creations of society make them less likely to be respected than believing are inherent. I've never understood where these inherent rights come from if not society. If they were not created by human beings, then where did they come from? If you say they came from God as most conservatives do then you tie rights to the concept of God and until you prove God exists you can't prove rights exist.
