Many are attempting to claim that the following words are the same:

Unalienable and Inalienable

They are NOT.

Here’s the difference:

“Unalienable: incapable of being alienated, that is, sold and transferred.”

Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, pg. 1523

“You cannot surrender, sell or transfer unalienable rights, they are a gift from the creator to the individual and cannot under ANY circumstances be surrendered or taken. All individual’s have unalienable rights.”


“Inalienable rights: Rights which are not capable of being surrendered or transferred without the consent of the one possessing such rights.” Morrison v. State, Mo. App. 252 S.W. 2d 97, 101

“You can surrender, sell or transfer inalienable rights if you consent either actually or constructively. Inalienable rights are not inherent in man and can be alienated by government. Persons have inalienable rights. Most state constitutions recognize only inalienable rights.

There is a huge difference between the two definitions.

Many make the mistake of using ‘inalienable’ when speaking of our Constitutional rights. In truth, our rights are UNalienable, and our Constitution does NOT give us these rightsOur Constitution PROTECTS our rights by affirming that no one can take them because they are Creator-given. Our unalienable rights include the right to bear arms, among many, many others.

It is NOT the Constitution that gives us that right; that right was Creator given, so as to protect us from tyrannical governments and for self-defense.

The Constitution of the united States does not give rightsit is a guarantee of our Creator given rights, not a giver of those rights.
The Declaration of Independence states that our rights are UNalienable. Our Founding Fathers were very meticulous in choosing the appropriate words in our critical documents.

The Constitution states that they cannot be infringed upon by anyone, nor any government, nor other entity.

In addition, these rights were NOT “handed to us through laws of the United States Constitution, the Magna Carta, and other documents from antiquity and historical situations wherein mankind fought, suffered, and died to win these freedoms”, as some have stated. These rights are strictly gifts given to the individual- by the Creator.

The Constitution of the united States is a stated guarantee that those inherent rights cannot be sold, transferred, infringed, nor surrendered, and cannot, under ANY circumstances, be surrendered or taken. They belong to the individual. (which is defined as being different than ‘person’ ; a corporation has certain rights that pertain to a ‘person’; individuals are the ‘createe’ of the Creator).

It is critical that we do not lose sight of the true definition of this crucial word ‘unalienable’.

Many are of the opinion, erroneously, that the two are interchangable- they are not, and were never meant to be confused. They definitely do not mean the same thing, as so many would try to have us believe.

It is imperative that we remain diligent and mindful of this fact.
