Senator Bernie Sanders thinks you can properly delegate a right that you do not have. Absurd.The interview is about his theory of legitimate government and where the right to govern comes from, as well as a proper legal system. Senator Bernie Sanders thinks you can delegate a right that you do not have. Do you agree? If his view were implemented the whole legal system would collapse. You can't properly give what you don't have.
- Watch the off camera harassment at the end revealing Sanders vindictiveness.
Watch this 2 minute Bill Richardson interview and your questions on delegation of rights will be answered. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAY_h...

A right is a moral principle defining and sanctioning a human beings freedom of action in a social context. It is the identification of a truth about how human beings can live optimally in a social context. Thus, it is the bridge between individual ethics and politics/political theory. The right identifies what you can do without anybody's permission and what you need permission for. The basic right is the right to life and all other rights stem from that right. The right to liberty and the right to property are required for optimal living and thus natural rights.

This is the use of the word right such as in the Declaration of Independence, or in the Rights of Man, by John Locke and should be distinguished and differentiated from a strictly legal right, which is what the law defines as what you can do without anybody's permission. A legal right may be in conflict with natural rights. It is what the law says you can do without permission or another must do.

My interview with Sen. Bernie Sanders is in the context of natural rights, the fundamental concept discussed above. When I ask him, is all legitimate governmental power derived from the people, he says, yes. Legitimate governmental power is power exercised by right and he accepts that human beings/citizens are the source of legitimate power, as is the constitutional phrase we the people, who have the rights delegate it to the government and therefore rightful action can only be rights that could have been properly delegated to the government. The natural right of self-defence of your life, liberty and property is what is delegated partially to the government, while reserving the right to protect yourself individually as well.
Yet Bernie Sanders claims you can properly delegate a right you do not have. This is absurd, because you cannot give what you don't have. If he had not stopped answering questions this would have become evident like it was in my interview, Bill Richardson and others.
Obviously, you can properly delegate your right to self defence: life , liberty and property and form a government dedicated to protecting our individual rights i.e. a limited government, but not redistribution of wealth like Bernie wants to do whole sale.
