Civil Rights or Civil Entitlements

File under, too good not to file away for future reference:
Civil rights stopped being civil rights decades ago and became civil entitlements, civil privileges allotted to especially deserving groups on account of their official victim status. These civil rights, peculiarly, deprived other people of their freedom and violated the very ethos of equality that had been the basis of the whole fight. In a tragic turn of events the fight for equality became the fight for inequality. -- Sultan Knish: Sex and the Single Socialist
