  • a right is something that you're born with, a privilege is something you have to work at. my kids know about that cuz thats what they get instead of money for doing chores.

  • Yes.

    Right. A right is something that you don't need to ask permission to do and is derived from ownership.
    Privilege. Something granted to you on a conditional basis which can be revoked at any time for any reason.
