Natural rights are inherent, not given by the state

Rights do not come from any legislative body. They are inherent in the fact that you are a living, sentient being. Government is a fictional creation and so only has the authority to act within the limited scope of its own framework. It can offer concepts such as ‘civil rights’, which are merely created privileges; your natural rights exist independent of state declaration. You don’t need to ask permission to participate in perfectly Lawful activities. You do not need a permit to exercise basic fundamental rights. But declaring you have rights while not exerting them is tantamount to not having any, as you only have the rights you are willing to actively assert.
