For a society to remain free these rights must be secured for every Individual with no exceptions. Without these Individual rights society will descend into darkness where there is no right to life, liberty and property. It may all seem reasonable and seem to make some kind of sense as the powers that be explain how they know best and aren’t we just trying to help the less fortunate. Giving up Individual rights to supposedly help another in reality will destroy both the helper and the helped. Both goals can be accomplished simultaneously though in a free society where Individual rights are secured for all!
