Natural Rights, Virginia-Style

Virginia Declaration of RightsThat all men are by nature equally free and independent, and have certain inherent rights, of which, when they enter into a state of society, they cannot, by any compact, deprive or divest their posterity; namely, the enjoyment of life and liberty, with the means of acquiring and possessing property, and pursuing and obtaining happiness and safety.

George Mason, Virginia Declaration of Rights, (1776)
