    Rights are things that should not have to be granted, they are given at birth and each person has the right to have them. However, the government legalizes them and recognizes them. Without this recognition from the government, the rights can be practiced, but there is always the chance of legal issues arising from doing so.

  • No

    People don't get their rights from the government. The government only takes away or limits rights of individuals. Basically the government implied the rights and the wrongs from the bible which was written a couple of thousands of years ago. The rights are of people should not be given from the government especially a government who tends to be corrupt and beneficial for it's own interest.

  • No. People get their rights from GOD!

    How the government is structured determines how the people are governed. Yet, people's inherent rights are of GOD, by which they were created. Establishment of rules, in society, should be administered and enforced as a collective and not by a particular group of individuals, whom themselves are the same as the people they are attempting to govern.

  • No, the government doesn't grant rights, it recognizes them.

    Some rights do come from governments, but these are technical rights, like what age is a legal age when you can drive a car. Basic human rights do not come from government but often need the government's recognition to back them up and enforce them. In our country, the Supreme Court often is called upon to decide issues about basic human rights and then the government is obligated to enforce those rights according to the Supreme Court's decision, but that does not mean that government has given its citizens those rights, only that they have recognized them as basic.
