"There is only one fundamental right (all the others are its consequences or corollaries): A man's right to his own life. The Bill of Rights was not directed against private citizens, but against the government— as an explicit declaration that individ-ual rights supersede any public or social power." Ayn Rand, "Man's Rights," The Virtue of Selfishness, at 108, 110-112 (Signet Books, N.Y., 1970).
