Many people have become dependant upon a government to give them their rights, meaning also that the government would protect them from those who might violate such rights.
This gives the government a lot of power to control people. If they must control, by force if need be, all the other people who might otherwise violate your rights that you have been provided with. Also, if it is deamed that you are violating someone else's rights then the government would be controlling you - and forcing you to conform to those laws at the very abandonment of your freedom.
Those who have the power to give you your rights also have the power to take away those rights, because our dependancy gave them that power of controlership.
Example: You have the right to earn money and put it into your bank account. But if you are able to get a lot of money from the population you are expected to re-cycle some of that money back into the population, otherwise you prevent others form their rights to get their fair share of our economys wealth. So then the government can tax you and take that uncycled loot and cycle it back to the less wealthy majority in the population, because they have a right to some of the pie also.
If and when a government might hold that perspective.
If you must depend upon a government to give you your rights and to protect your rights for you, then you become like a woman housewife who depends upon her husband to protect her rights, or as little children who need mama to protect them when some bully kid is threatening thier rights.
So when people become adults they leave the overview of their parents and then they subsitute the government to play that role in their adult life. Making the government their big brother, mama and papa. And they remain dependant upon that parent-child kind of behaviorism.
Always dependant upon a higher authority, and in the process you loose independance to think for your self (to act on what you believe).
So you want a government that will protect your rights, but what you are effecting is a government that can super regulate all kinds of activites within the population. Some believe they are "God given" rights - but can a secular government that cannot mix religion with law making really "give you some rights on behalf of a God"? That is odd.
Plus, we have a continued battle or competition as to who's rights are the most important, and thusly, be given and protected.
You have the right of free speech, but cannot say "fire" in a crowed movie house.
You have a right to bear arms, but not to walk into a public courtroom bearing arms.
And so forth.
You have the right to appear naked in public, but if just one person calls in a complant then you have violated their rights, and subject to arrest.
Most of our rights can be admended with limitations. Because we do not have the right to set the standards about what rights will be delt out and to whom. The authorian system of governments and police departments do that for us, underwhom we are both protected and arrested - depending.
So those are your rights. And a philosophy about it.
Whatcha think? PS - remember the limitations on what you are allowed to think and express before speaking (writing).
