A Rigmarole Called Rights

A right that can be manipulated is generally forced onto a subdued nation by a hegemony that stabs expression within minutes of conception. Thus, the question arises whether rights are an obligation regaled to the masses in return for acquiescence.

Needs and rights have become interchangeable terms. But it is needs that create rights.

The oppression of the majority stifling diverse opinions creates the need to defend intellectual independence. It is the violation of natural freedom that created the terminology of rights disguising the destructive facade appeasing people with a gift that reduces liberty to the art of begging and scavenging.

  1. So true. Never thought of rights from this perspective. Very well-thought.
