to choose one's attitude
in any given set of circumstances,
to choose one's own way."

    A “right”, as concerns the being man is: tangible matter’s eternally omnipresent laissez-faire warrant, enabling nature’s inherent and inalienable preeminent conveyance - the prerogative to act without restriction at/in each and every, any and all way(s) harmoniously at organic justice/just locutions (non-infringement of/on another’s rights), natural law/the law of nature, equity, life, liberty, property and happiness. A right, being completely outside man’s lawful, moral and ethical administrative authority, power and prowess elucidates through that separate and equal station within the powers of the earth which exists as an absolute at / by / within “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God”. Rights are personally unique (emanating from the individual “being”; - rights are ‘NOT’, nor can they be: social, collective, or dependent on others). Rights are Divinely endowed by nature’s Creator (lawfully / legally / morally outside corporeal man’s legislative, executive and judicial authority, power and prowess to adversely regulate, injuriously affect, limit or otherwise deleteriously act upon – only by despots through tyranny are rights deleteriously acted upon or anti-law applied to a third party / collective).
