Government's Just Powers come from the Consent of the Governed.
Rights are actions/behaviors that DO NOT require the permission of another to act/behave.
Privileges are actions/behaviors that Require the permission of another to act/behave.
Consent is Permission. So when the Government Acts/Behaves without Consent the Power is UNJUST.
Consent can only come from Free Will and those Dependent upon others (Parents, Strangers, Government) do not in practice have Free Will since it is another's Will that shapes their life/well being.
It is quite obvious that most of the Power the US Government has assumed is UNJUST because the US Government has made it MANDATORY that US Citizens become Dependent upon it.
