"Among the things that make rights -- in particular, that basket of rights commonly referred to as 'civil liberties' -- actual rights as opposed to privileges, is that they are inviolable and universal. That is, even people you don’t like enjoy these rights, and are entitled to the protection of the same. And even people you do like have to respect these rights, or suffer the consequences for violating them." (01/24/12)
