Definition
not separable — i.e., not capable of being taken, given, or otherwise transferred away
  • We will rebuild America's system on the moral premise which had been its foundation, but which you treated as a guilty underground, in your frantic evasion of the conflict between that premise and your mystic morality: the premise that man is an end in himself, not the means to the ends of others, that man's life, his freedom, his happiness are his by inalienable right.
    3.7 Part 3 Chapter 7 — "This is John Galt Speaking" (88% in)
