  •  The law has been employed to deprive humans (0+ / 0-)

    of their rights from the start. Property rights always trumped human rights.

    If the U.S. is a materialistic culture, it's not because we lust for material wealth; it's because material assets have served as a substitute for our human rights being respected. We can own property, but our intrinsic properties are liable to being abused.

    Conditioning medical care on a vaginal inspection is a current example.

    We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.
