it still got us closer to liberty than anything ever has. Did I say I agreed with the infringement of rights? No.
Every human being has, and has always had, these rights. It is, was, and always will be wrong for anyone to infringe upon said rights. Rights are based off of morality, and provide the only foundation for liberty (I can only assume your undefined consumer sovereignty equates to "whoever has the money calls the shots"/Ayn Rand-esque self-centeredness).
Of course, you might not believe in an objective right and wrong, in which case you're not worth talking to.
