This Is Worth Remembering:

Governments Don’t Give People Rights,” by Donald J. Boudreaux at the Foundation for Economic Education.

Rights pre-exist government. Therefore, even if – as most people believe – government is necessary to help to secure individuals’ rights, government does not create that which it itself is created to help to secure. Your real-estate agent might be necessary to sell your home, but this fact does not thereby make her the source of your home’s value or the owner of your home.
