I write in the futile attempt to challenge the premise of the thread and (at least most of) the responses. What follows is a bare statement of my beliefs in this area, and not an attempt to argue them effectively.
First, rights are not granted, they exist. They can be recognized or not. The Bill of Rights does specifically recognizes many genuine rights, and possibly at least one made-up one. The rights would exist with or without that Bill, but they might not be so readily recognized by our government.
Second, every person at birth has the same rights. It is (in principle at least) possible, through one’s own behavior, to lose some of those rights. It is also possible, through other peoples’ behavior, to lose the ability to practice those rights, but that is not the same as not having the rights.
So the premise of this thread, that there are a lot of rights hanging around but that some of them might be pruned away without being missed, is fundamentally flawed. A particular right either exists and applies to everyone equally, or it doesn’t exist.
This might be viewed as a merely semantic difference, but there is a lot of nonsense talked about rights and much of it is because of the sorts of semantic confusion engendered by threads like this. No offense is intended by writing this, but I hope it might at least give one person pause to think about how they talk, and think, about rights.
