RIGHTS VS PRIVILEGES

To understand the principle of civil, human, individual, or medical rights, one must understand what a right is, and the difference between a right and a privilege. Our founding fathers used philosopher John Locke's vision of natural law as a guide for forging the foundation of our nation. Our Declaration of Independence expresses Locke's vision, declaring, "We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness."

Government is necessary only to protect our rights, but the only rights we can delegate to government are those we possess. For example, we all have a natural right to defend our property and ourselves. Since we possess this right, we can delegate authority to government to defend us. By contrast, we don't have a natural right to take the life or property of another person; therefore, we cannot legitimately delegate such authority to government.

A right is the sovereignty to act without the permission of others. Rights define what you may do without the permission of other men and it erects a moral and legal barrier across which they may not cross. It is your protection against those who attempt to forcibly take your life’s time, your money or property. The concept of a right carries with it an implicit, unstated footnote: you may exercise your rights as long as you do not violate the same rights of another—within this context, rights are an absolute. We use our collective might to punish and deter those who violate our rights. This is the only appropriate use of the law.

Rights are applied to all men, not just a few. There are no special "rights" unique to women or men, blacks or white, the elderly or the young, homosexuals or heterosexuals, the rich or the poor, doctors or patients or any other group. A special advantage or immunity or benefit not enjoyed by all or the “rights” reserved exclusively by particular persons or groups are called privileges.

Privileges are granted from the life, liberty, time, and property of one individual, group, or organization to another.

Government can also grant privileges, however, those privileges are the life, liberty, time, and property of an individual or group of individuals. When privileges are given that violate the rights of another, than an act of immorality, or rights violation has taken place.

Simply put; there is only one, fundamental right, the right to life—which is: the sovereignty to follow your own judgment, without anyone’s permission, about the actions in your life. All other rights are applications of this right to specific contexts, such as property, freedom of speech, and the freedom to medicate your own body. If you become ill, you need not seek the permission of the government to seek and obtain treatment.

The principle of a free society, the right to self-ownership; to deny this is to give praise to slavery. It is a perversion of nature to take away from human beings the means to alleviate the symptoms of debilitating diseases, or to use a medicine to prevent blindness. When the government uses its collective might to prevent an individual from improving, enriching, educating, or medicating their selves, it is essentially attacking it's own people by claiming a higher authority on the minds and bodies of it's own citizens.

The quote "right to life" will spark an abortion debate.

Good article. Many have their opinions on what a right is, some say we have none. Some say many of the privilges should be a right.

I like the right to life being the basic one...THE one.
