The phrase "You have no right": What's the deal? Answered
Recently, I saw someone use a variation the phrase "You have no right to say that". Location and who said that are not important. Anyways, my bull detector went off, so I just decided to post this topic.
For all the people who have used this phrase before, guess what? They still said it. The receivers of this skewered phrase obviously don't care if they don't have the right to say it, which brings me to this train of thought:
Why do we call it a "Right"? Most times people say it as if it was not a legal right at all, but matter of fact is, that most conversation on the internet is not really anything to involve cops or authorities in (Well, at least the conversations with the phrase I mentioned above), so why are we treating this as something straight out of the constitution or bill of rights or whatever?
Offtopic: I kept the poster of the comment and the location of the comment anonymous for a reason. It would be smart for him/her to not blow it with a poorly written comment.
Why I posted this topic: There have been a bunch of phrases on the internet (some offensive with cuss words and whatnot) that don't make sense when you go by their definition, and I felt like ruining one of them.
