Why? It's not as if I can't overstep my rights (in this case by going beyond zero). Everyone can overstep their rights. People can assert that they have the right to murder. That doesn't mean they do; they're just wrong.

I may very well be wrong to argue about it.

But I am still correct that I have no rights.


Repeating your assertion isn't an argument.  You've gone down in flames over this repeatedly.  I'm bored with it now

You are entitled to your own opinion, you are not entitled to your own facts.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corwin_Amendment

Buchannan: Signed it

Lincoln:  "I understand a proposed amendment to the Constitution—which amendment, however, I have not seen—has passed Congress, to the effect that the Federal Government shall never interfere with the domestic institutions of the States, including that of persons held to service ... holding such a provision to now be implied constitutional law, I have no objection to its being made express and irrevocable"

"Just weeks prior to the outbreak of the Civil War, Lincoln sent a letter to each state's governor transmitting the proposed amendment, noting that Buchanan had approved it"

So? It wasn't ratified. There wasn't even time to call ratifying conventions in the states before the slave states seceded sent CSA troops to the U.S. territories and S. Carolina attacked the U.S. Military base at Ft. Sumter.

Edit:Lincoln was obligated by the Constitution to send proposed amendments to the states, whether he liked them or not.

Lincoln was also obligated to pursue the war that Congress declared after the Ft. Sumter attack. Part of Lincoln's obligation was to protect U.S. territories from being stolen by foreign nations, so the fighting began.

The slave states were determined to spread slavery across N. America by any means at all, including secession and war.

Fine, you have a right to believe that is true.

Found another one.

Universal Declaration Of Human Rights demands Universal Basic Income (or supplementary State income):

Article 23.

Everyone who works has the right to just and favorable remuneration ensuring for himself and his family an existence worthy of human dignity, and supplemented, if necessary, by other means of social protection.


IOW, wealth redistribution so everyone is equally poor.   Cry

Is there anything in it that says anyone who starts a business has a right to succeed and stay in business and earn a just and favorable profit?

Golly, if businesses fail, their employees lose jobs they have a right to have...
