Answer

Correct Option is Our rights should be dependent on the performance of a set of unconnected obligations.

Solution:The government's viewpoint, according to the last lines of the second paragraph, proposes something more alarming, specifically, that our rights should be made conditional on the fulfillment of a set of external obligations. Thus, we can infer that only statement (b) is correct with reference to the context of the given question.
Refer to the last lines of the second paragraph, “But the government’s position proposes something rather more ominous. It puts forward an idea that our rights ought to be made conditional on the performance of a set of extraneous obligations. This suggestion is plainly in the teeth of the Constitution’s text, language, and history.”
