  •  Deprivation is the key to dominance. (5+ / 0-)

    Lording it over other people is only possible if they can be made subordinate by depriving them of their rights.
    Time is of the essence.
    Deprivation of rights is supposed to be reserved for punishment for crime -- crime being an unauthorized or unjustified deprivation of rights. That is, individuals are not supposed to be deprived of their rights until after they have committed a criminal act that has been proved against them.
    Some people, even the well-intentioned, do not get the importance of sequence, of the order in which things should/do happen. So, for example, they see something they want and take it without first asking whether someone else has a claim. They commit a theft because a claim or right was proved valid after. If nobody had a claim, the taking would have been inconsequential.
    Time, a sense of time, is essential to rights. Which is interesting in that "right" is a directional word, while time is sequential.
