The principles of Natural Rights as derived from Natural Law have been contemplated by humankind throughout history.  While such concepts have been considered to be self-evident truths by many, it seems that in recent times these truisms have been largely obfuscated by deceitful philosophies and ideologies.

Toward the goal of maximizing peace, prosperity, and liberty, the NRC believes it paramount to re-educate the People in the principles of Natural Rights, so that what was forgotten, ignored, or usurped might again become self-evident to the masses.  The foundations of this education include recognizing the difference between a Natural Right and a Civil Right, codifying the qualifications for a Natural Right, and enumerating some fundamental examples of Natural Rights and their implementation into society.

Natural VS Civil

A Natural Right is one derived from Natural Lawlaws of nature.

A Civil Right is one derived from Civil Lawlaws of humankind.

The Civil Law of a free society will never violate Natural Law.  While political strategies in dealing with societal problems might vary over time, these fundamental natural rights principles never change.

Qualifications of an Individual Natural Right

1. A natural right must exist in a state of nature preceding any government or point of civil law;

2. A natural right must impose no obligation upon another individual or collective of individuals;

3. A natural right must not violate or greatly risk violating a natural right of another individual.
