With Or Without Memory

"Natural rights, unlike the variability of human culture on whose general recognition their enforcement depends, just are what they are and are not subject to any man's opinion at any time. They may be ignored or their implications left unattended and unenforced, but that doesn't alter what they are."
Part of my comment in response to IanB at Samizdata.
