Comment: The truth is...

The truth is...

The truth is...

"Rights" do exist.

And they emanate from a single, common, known source:

The English dictionary, used in context of the referrer text, e.g., the Bill of Rights (which doesn't grant them but instead only acknowledges them and their pre-existence and, with emphasis, "SHALL NOT be infringed", their inalienability)

I noticed they're not the same as, and possibly very different from, "entitlements", because someone found relevant to define those differently, in the same dictionary... You know, for spatial convenience.

Observably, it has been too difficult for several U.S. governments to grok these simple notions anyhow.

Weird, no?

Maybe I missed something, though.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.
