Overuse Of Words

FLG doesn't have much good to say about this article, but he does tend agree with this statement:
calling something a right can be a way of rhetorically enforcing an important wish, a way of making a wish sound important.

The reckless and ever-expanding use of the word "right" may be, in FLG's opinion, one of the largest threats to our nation, perhaps even our civilization. If everything is important, then nothing is.
