Central is our language, that way to the soul of how we view our world and us in it, through rights talk. American rights talk is stark, simple, polarizing, legalistic, excessively bestowing the rights label with exaggerated insular absoluteness of hyper-individualism expressed as unbounded wants and desires with utter silence on personal, civic or collective responsibilities that's a mouthful.
