    Well, a Civil Liberty would say that when I am in your house and it is your property, I have a Liberty to use the bathroom, but do NOT have a Right to smoke in your house. I would have a Right to smoke in my own house, but not yours, as it would be your permission (Civil Liberty) to grant in that specific situation. What neither one of us would have a Right to do is to decree that the other may not smoke, ever. Recognizing the difference between a Right and a Civil Liberty (Permission) is a very important concept to understand. Trouble with this understanding is that for most people, the Definition between Rights and Permissions has been heavily confused. Whether that Confusion is intentional or not, the consequences are the same. Rights end where the Equal Rights of others begin. So yes, a person you once invited into your house has Rights, but by coming into your house, where you are Sovereign, King, and there is NO higher authority, they choose to temporarily give up their own Rights and abide by your rules. Outside your house, you would have zero authority over what they do. You could say that based on their behavior outside your house that you will no longer allow them to come inside your house, but, being Sovereign over your own property, you do NOT need ANY reason to say "no, you may not come in". A "Civil Liberty" would be nothing more than a Permission you chose to grant, and have valid authority to revoke that Permission at any time. Can I have one of your beers? That is your Permission to grant, but most importantly, I should not think for a second that I have any authority to take your beer without your permission. Ron explained a form of this as Entitlement. Immigration I do not believe is a Right, but a Permission to be granted by the We the People, and we can pick and choose, and even cherry pick who we will allow to come into the country for what ever reason, if any, that we want. Also, this isnt directed specifically at you, just an in general reply.

    Making anything illegal only creates a Black Market for it. If you want any sort of control over it, it needs to be legalized. Trouble with this concept is that it isnt Mexico that is consuming all the drugs, its the US.

    I guess Minimum Wage is too expensive for the company to afford and still make a profit? Oh well, it seems to solve the problem of Livable Wage by rejecting all humans and also takes care of the problem of companies that exploit people with Minimum Wage being subsidized by govt thru Welfare... --- War on Cash. Debit Cards are as dangerous to Privacy as Cell Phones and Google and the NSA.

    Then the People have Rights, both at an individual level, and at a national level? Would that also mean (and yes, stretching here a bit) to collectively say "we dont want every immigrant that wants to come here"? Would the People have the Right to do such a thing? Again, extending, if one of the foundations of Rights is "I own myself", as a collective (and yes, being careful with that), would "The People" technically own the country? And same as Private Property Rights where if you own your Property like your house, you have a Right to say you may / may not smoke in my house, and that is MY Permission to grant. A homeowner would also a Right to say you may / may not enter my house. Abstracting to larger scale and extension, collectively you may / may not enter our Country? Abstract to small scale, I think what has happened is a homeowner allowed a person to come into their house, and the invited person is now inviting other people to come into the homeowners house, even though they do not have the Right to do so. I believe that concept is why there is a major difference between Constitutional Rights and Civil Liberties, where the Rights protect the Individual and Civil Liberties protect the community as a whole. Feel free to challenge the idea, but is that thinking rational?

    Lets play with an idea here... The idea is how to shut down InfoWars instead of how to keep them going, or if InfoWars is protected by First Amendment. And, lets do it legally. Easy concept that respects Freedom of Press, called Free Market. So, if we wanted InfoWars shut down, then people would not watch, and companies would not associate with InfoWars by advertising products. First, InfoWars would adjust their prices for Law of Economics, for Supply & Demand. If that did not work, then InfoWars would go out of business because no one listened and no one bought advertising or sold products or provide services. Free Market and Free Press both work as neither Right is even remotely infringed. The reason that Free Market has not worked in shutting down InfoWars is exactly because of Free Market, protected by Free Press. InfoWars has a Demand for people to get information that does not fit the MSM's Official Narrative about more war and bigger govt and terrorists and socialism / communism. InfoWars offers their own flavor with the exact opposite, that bigger govt is not the solution, socialism / communism does not work, more war hurts everyone, and individuals and small groups in high positions of power really are out to cause harm to people in various forms. Both Alex and MSM offer different flavors of Sensationalism. That Sensationalism is a drug that can get people addicted as it plays on Emotions. Trouble is, people stop watching for the Truth, but rather how much information is Sensationalized in the way it is presented.

    Hmm... If people are not given Rights from Govt, but rather their Creator, and Govts are created by people, would that make the People the Creator of Govts, and, in turn, again since Rights are granted by their Creator and People created Govt, can the People grant very specific Rights (really Privileges) to the Govts they create? I am sort of testing the concept of Abstraction at both Macro and Micro scale, so I need to hear both sides to the argument... The idea is that things which work at the small scale also work on large and very large scale, abstracting back and forth between very small and very large, so I am curious.

    No. There is this pervasive idea that large scale operations must be public utilities. History and present day reality contradict that. It's not an either/or proposition. Excerpts from Mises' The Myth of Natural Monopoly:

    Yes, really. Progs decry segregation in private settings, so you base your dislike on a different principle. I am 100% sure that you are paid. And I don't say anything about a person unless I am 100% sure. Not 99%. Not 99.9%. Not 99.99%. 100%.

    Well, of course we just want people to die! --- Here's the thing. They claim they are making us safer. The definition of "safer" is as subjective as "good". They are offering a temporary decrease to risks from "terrorists" while increasing the risk that individuals will face from EVERY other type of faction that would use the information gathered for less than honorable means. Every single one of those group affiliations will cause harm to other individuals in many various forms, not all of which are physical, but all are done with a clear conscious that they are "doing the right thing". So make people safe by disabling peoples ability to protect themselves from government intrusions into their lives is only a temporary means due to the Turnkey Nature of Surveillance. When you get a political party into office that will have you dead because you are white or brown or the wrong religion or wrong political affiliation, that same Surveillance they used to temporarily "keep you safe" from groups of people the US itself armed and now defines as "enemy" will be used against the American People. Who watches the Watchmen?

Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.
