“Is the state the source of human rights?” What a silly question to ask! Our marvelous Creator is the only source of our human rights- it is not the state or government.
If a person were to say that the state should be or is the source of our rights they would be crazy and illogical (or they’re just paid off by the government).
When the state is the source of our rights, the state will have total control over us! The state has way too much control over us just the way it is now.
Please do not allow your state or government permission to become the source of your rights, the consequences of that occurrence would be extremely grave! In fact all government power should be limited to an extent, because if the government were limited it would have less control over us!
