6. IMHO, we differ on the sense of "have"

You wrote: "I do not agree that all humans indeed do have all the rights they should have." I suggest that the existence of a right and it being innate to each and every person is fundamental to how I view 'what is a person'. I believe that a person cannot be separated from their rights. I see all the time that either by other individuals, groups or governments that those rights are not respected.

I don't see that those rights are gone. In general, it is a basic duty of government to protect all of the rights of all of the people.

IMHO, getting "enforceable laws passed" without a clear understanding of the rights they must protect, would be like trying to win a football game where all the players are on the same team. One cannot discern an ally from an opponent.
