A "right" is a legal and/or cultural privilege which you have won or which others have won for you and which you may continue to exercise as long as there remains a social and cultural consensus (enshrined in law) in its favor. Jefferson was wrong; no rights exist "in nature"; nothing has been endowed upon you by a "Creator"; nothing is inalienable; nothing, nothing, nothing! You want your rights? You may have to fight for them. Your mere status as a human being does not entitle you to anything. Didn't you learn anything from the "Game of Thrones"?
