What He Said

17 May

Marko was asked:

what are collective rights?

Something that exists only in myth and legend.  There’s no right you gain by joining a mob, no matter how large the mob, how shiny their badges, or how many guns they have.  No group has more rights than those of its individual members.  The term “collective right” is only ever used when the person using it doesn’t like the right in question, and wants to make it subject to majority vote.
