Allison something to sooth your inner chaos.

Ayn Rand, developer of the philosophy of Objectivism asserted that a group, as such, has no rights. A man can neither acquire new rights by joining a group nor lose the rights which he does possess.

The principle of individual rights is the only moral base of all groups or associations. She maintained that since only an individual man can possess rights, the expression "individual rights" is a redundancy (which one has to use for purposes of clarification in today’s intellectual chaos), but the expression "collective rights" is a contradiction in terms.

Individual rights are not subject to a public vote; a majority has no right to vote away the rights of a minority; the political function of rights is precisely to protect minorities from oppression by majorities (and the smallest minority on earth is the individual).

Before you start attacking me. Calling me a bigot and other names. Read my post. Not in a single post will you find me bashing gays or even saying gays should not be in the military.

Fact is I may be the only person on this forum who served with gays in the military.

What I am doing is outing those who pretend to be champions of rights ("individual rights" is a redundancy which one has to use for purposes of clarification in today’s intellectual chaos)
when in reality they desire/demand group rights based on their/societies/governments assigned group.
