The State has to be the “I” Focus on Problem Solving:

Why should I care about the bill of rights? Thats a fun question to ponder about in the safety of “my” flat, typing on “my” laptop, while I am streaming video from “my” smart phone.

Life’s important issues are viewed from relative points of views. A point of view is relative to a point in time. I am living in a point in time in which I am lucky to be so privileged. I am also aware that individual world views are constantly in states of chaos (“insert hyperbole”). This is a declaration of the interpretation and my rights.

Terms to define:

What does “right” mean?
original definition: Old English ‘riht’; “just, good, fair; proper, fitting; straight, not bent, direct, erect,
