The Common Sense of Natural Human Rights:
A Contemporary Essay on the Infringement of Americans’ Rights and How to Restore Those Rights
There is a lot of talk these days about “rights.” Often, we hear phrases bantered about such as civil rights, human rights, and consumer rights. These phrases all sound good. They stir emotions in our chest and get us excited for action. But, in the rush of the 24/7 news cycle, between glances at our smart phones and computers, as we consume these phrases in our mind, how many of us pause to wonder where these rights come from?
In this modern day essay, Thomas St. James explores the origin and purpose of our natural rights enumerated in the U.S. Constitution. His call to action is clear: think independently, objectively and critically about American current events and act according to your conscience.
