Humans don't deserve rights, they enjoy the privilege of not deserving it but having it anyway.

I think humans do deserve rights. without them we would have died out a long time ago

what does immortality have to do with anything? if humans didn't have rights then people would ravage cities and kill each other. its a morals type deal really. human rights are based off morals. like someone growing up in the fifties is gonna think blacks don't deserve rights where as the youth of today couldn't care less. face it. it all dumbs down to how you grew up thinking and learning and developing your personal morals and mindset

The fact that Pro agrees that humans do not deserve the rights to ravage cities and kill each other proves that, at the very least, Pro sees that rights are not always inherently deserved to human beings.

Pro then comes up with a nihilistic, subjectivist approach to morality and human rights, which implies that no right is inherently human but rather subjectively seen as being so despite lack of any objective proof. I agree with Pro on this matter.

We should have rights, but they shouldn't exist as physical objects, rewards, or oppose any obligation onto others except for the obligation to leave you alone. Rights only exist as actions, life liberty and the pursuit of happiness, you are born with your rights.
