To fail to do so is insane.  A society is a collection of people.  It
can have fewer rights, as an entity, than they do individually, but
from what source can it claim more?  Are you trying to invoke Godwin's
law?  Do you hold that "rights" are some sort of emergent phenomena
that just spring into being if enough people think they should?

You don't have to agree with me; you can be wrong if you want.
