Is it ever justifiable to take away a person's rights?

  • Yes rights can be taken away by 'due process of law.'

    Our rights are the legal, social, or ethical principles of freedom that we are granted by our citizenship. We can lose those rights when we fail to follow the laws of our society. When a person is convicted by a jury of their peers they have forfeited some of their rights, as defined by our laws.

  • Yes, if a person abuses their rights, they should have those rights taken away.

    A person who continuously abuses their rights or the rights of others should risk having their rights taken away. For example, if someone has the right to carry a firearm, yet they continue to place others at risk by illegally using that firearm, they should lose that right to carry a firearm.

  • Undefinable Value and Image Bearer of God

    The government was created to secure our rights, all it really does is steal, rape, and pillage. The common retort is that ‘what has government done but give us a higher quality of life?’ this is absolute lunacy. Inventions and free markets create higher standards of life, people not government does this. Now that it is understood that government is not the answer to justice, what is? If you’re family is being attacked, is it truly reasonable to kill that attacker? If one is honest the answer is no, it is inherently selfish to believe that you are the absolute moral authority. As image-bearers of God, it is our solemn duty to except the fact that we cannot reasonably claim authority over one another. God is the one who has authority to do this, not us. As to the argument that this approach will lead to death, so what? Take up your cross and repent, and live the highest life possible-a life with Christ.
