    I have a working draft of why in the main I think the underlying
    premise that only 'persons have rights' is flawed up at:


    I also find it amusing how Horowitz has shifted from a
    leftist puppet of his kommunist paymasters to a right
    wing extremists - has he really changed, or has our
    perceptions about how to bifurcate the space meandered
    as he crawled further into the 'over thirty' crowd?

    How far we clearly have not come since 'the sixties' with
    resolving either who has rights, what they are, and how best
    to deal with conflicts of opinions.
