I've always tried to describe it like this; any idea of 'rights' that has to be bestowed on the individual by a greater power (whether this be by god or state) is illegitimate in the fact that those very 'rights' can be stripped at any time -- and how convenient that the people who have the power to take those 'rights' away are also the ones who uphold them.

When there is no accountability there can be no 'rights'.
