A God-Given Natural Right Analysis A God-Given Natural Right , by Roger McGrath, is an essay about how all humans have natural rights and they cannot be taken away or given permission to have. For example, he writes about how the English took away the Irish and Scottish peoples’ rights, and how wrong it was for them to do that. He also writes about how the right to self defense means that you need to have a gun in order to protect yourself, but there are so many laws against it that you cannot protect yourself, which makes crime rate higher. He makes many claims of fact, value, and policy, and supports them. His first claim of fact is that “most of the Greek city-states were bastions of democracy.” He supports this by saying that they had a strong middle class, all of whom were armed and called hoplites. The hoplites went into battle to fight for their freedom, which according to McGrath is how a government should work.
