I have to respectfully

I have to respectfully disagree with Mr. Wozniack on a point he makes around 08:30 in the video. He seems confused on what is a right and what is a privilege.

Rights, when talking about the Constitution specifically, are unalienable, meaning incapable of being surrendered, alienated, or transferred. They are derived from natural law and are inherent in ones' self, and incident upon others.

Mr. Wozniak claims that the government granted us our "rights" through legislation, but what he is incorrectly deeming "rights", are actually privileges. A privilege being a right or immunity granted as a peculiar benefit, advantage, or favor.

What he fails to realize is that any authority which can grant a privilege, always reserves the right to rescind the same privilege. Meaning that he believes that we have a Bill of Privileges, which I disagree with.

Other than that, it was a good interview. Much respect for Mr. Wozniak.
