If your idea of a higher authority is one that is fallable in a way that you, it's creation, would detect, then I suggest you climb to an even higher
authority. One that baffles your mind and causes you to listen.
You have the right to speak because you were designed with the necessary parts, the mind to formulate language, and the good fortune to have been
taught it so you could share your thoughts. Because of all these blessings which came from outside you, yet remain within you, your rights are
inalienable by your own will to exercise them.
No man gave you these things.
Thus no man has a right to take them away.
Listing what you have a right to do is a trap to limiting what you can do.
You want to know what I have a right to do?
Anything that I can do.
And I haven't found it's limits yet.
This is because I am ever mindful that others have the same rights. Therefore I circumscribe my actions to not interfere with that of others.
This is true freedom, and the only right of concern, is the right to be.
