    Like inalienable rights? Like in the US Constitution? One of those is "life," ie., you have a right to life in the US, which the framers said was innate to creation, by God. So that was universal, even outside the US, but a foreign govt may not give you the right, because they're a dictatorship.

    The universe is inherently evil, so although you have the right to survive, other life forms want to survive too, and survive to the max, to live off of you and that reduces your well being. That's called capitalism, which the US has and condones and gives everyone the freedom to exploit others, within certain laws, mainly owning the means of production acquired from being rich to begin with, from which most people become workers and allow themselves to be exploited in order to survive, which isn't really a "right to live," because you really can't live working 40 hours a week, during the day.

    True. Everyone is entitled to have a life with which they are pleased, whatever that means to them, assuming it does not infringe on the rights of others to the same.

    A "right" to anything necessarily implies someone else in power conferring that right. In this case, we must consider God and Nature. Who else, right? So do THEY confer that right on us? No, not really - because we can't go and complain to them if we get hit by lightning, say. It's not a "rights" thing. It's like the sea. We don't own it, it doesn't own us, but we can engage with it if we choose.
