Who cares? “Might makes right!” I acquire my “rights” by being able and willing to fight for them.
The only reason, that a society “grants” me my rights, is that it can’t afford the price that I will extract if it doesn’t.
If I’m willing to die on a particular “hill”, cause there are always more of them than me, then I put a stake in the ground.
We have examples in history of one person standing up to the mob.
The American Revolution legal? It’s like “jumbo shrimp”. Makes no sense.
