I've always considered rights to be ideas. They're priviliges we give ourselves and put up on a pedestal.

People talk about "human rights" for instance but it's not like they exist somewhere in our universe. They're just things we think up, agree upon and say that everyone has them.

I think it is well established that the only reason aliens come to earth is to slice up cows and examine inside peoples' bottoms. Unless you are a cow or suffer haemerrhoids I don't think there is anything to worry about from aliens. - keithprosser
