CIVIL LIBERTIES / Rights
Civil liberties, generally, freedoms to do certain things without restraint from government, civil liberties can be distinguished from civil rights. Constitutionally, the term civil rights appears in s92(13) of the Constitution Act of 1867 but, in this context, it refers to the right to enter freely into a contractual agreement, the right to own or lease property and the right to sue for a breach of duty owed to one. There is some overlap among the terms civil liberties, civil rights, HUMAN RIGHTS and fundamental freedoms and, in international law, civil and political rights. Traditionally civil liberties may be categorized into 4 kinds: the political civil liberties, the legal civil liberties, the egalitarian civil liberties and economic civil liberties.
Civil liberties are freedoms guaranteed to us by international covenants and treaties as well as the Constitution ALL to protect the people from tyranny. The political civil liberties are called fundamental freedoms and include the freedoms of religion, expression (speech and press), assembly and association.
The Civil liberty, Freedom from arbitrary interference in one’s pursuits by individuals or by government. The term is usually used in the plural. Civil liberties are protected explicitly in the constitutions of most democratic countries. In authoritarian countries, civil liberties are often formally guaranteed in a constitution but ignored in practice and this is what we are seeing today by the fake news and science fear mongering the CV-19 lockdowns and mandatory masks this agenda has created.
We all have “Civil rights” and “civil liberties”. BUT we must fight for these Rights and Freedoms or they will disappear.
Civil rights concern the basic right to be free from unequal treatment based on certain protected characteristics (race, gender, medical, disability, etc.) in settings such as employment, education, housing, and access to public facilities.
A civil rights violation occurs in designated situations where an individual is discriminated against on the basis of a protected characteristic such as mandatory masks. Most civil rights laws are established through the federal government via federal legislation or case law but the rights of the people are NOT given by Government the People give the Government the right to Govern UNTILL such time as there is corruption and the will of the people dictate change .
Civil liberties concern basic rights and freedoms that are guaranteed — either explicitly identified in the Charter / Constitution, or interpreted or inferred through the years by legislatures or the courts.
