Our Bill of Rights is quickly becoming a Bill of Privileges. What is the difference between a “right” and a “privilege”? Privileges are granted to you by someone else and therefore can be taken away when that authority deems you no longer fit to exercise that privilege.
Such as your right to freely speak becomes a privilege to be granted and taken away when you don’t say what you have been told to say. When you right to peaceably assembly has been taken away because your ideas and the number of people supporting your idea is inconvenient to that authority. But someone else who shares the same goals as that authority is allowed to protest and if that protest turns a little rough, like burning down cities, well that is okay.
