Rights are the things we believe we are entitled to, the freedoms that we hold dear, and the protections that we demand the government provides us with. If we look at the trends related to Rights, we start to see a common thread: it's all about having more options and tools at our disposal. We want the right resources, services, and information to empower ourselves and make informed decisions. This desire for independence and control also manifests in our desire for more freedom and decreased restrictions on our actions. Beyond that, there is a focus on protecting our personal and social interests through the legal system and by promoting equal treatment for all. And what do all of these trends ultimately boil down to? The right to live our lives the way we choose, with as much support and protection as possible.
