Being a citizen

"The State was created to protect the rights of its citizens, not the other way around. My rights as a human being have precedence over the ability of the State to legislate even if this legislation purports to achieve the common good. The State, in short, serves as a vehicle to the fulfilment of my rights, not the other way around."

That is what we expect and were brought up to believe.
That is what we should work for, live for.
But it looks more and more the "other way round"
