Human Rights Capitalism
“We hold these truths to be self-evident . . . that they are endowed . . . with certain unalienable Rights.” In the Agreement among We, the People, we have agreed that certain unalienable rights exist and each member of humankind is endowed with such rights, which is a self-evident truth not requiring further proof, res ipsa loquitur. Furthermore, We, the People have agreed that such self-evident unalienable rights include more than those listed by virtue of the phrase “among these are”. As such, all human rights are incorporated into our Agreement among We, the People. Consequently, such self-evident unalienable rights include those listed as well as those self-evident unalienable rights which are not listed.
The Bill of Rights lists additional unalienable rights as existing among our self-evident truths (which require no further proof), elaborating on what is included among these unalienable rights beyond life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The proposal and adoption of the Bill of Rights expressly confirms that our Agreement among We, the People contemplates certain additional human rights, which may go on and on, res ipsa loquitur.
