    The rights to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" are enshrined in the U.S. Declaration of Independence.

    Although the terms "right" and "privilege" are easy to define, differences of opinion still remain as to whether something should be considered a right or a privilege. Additionally, rights and privileges are sometimes in conflict.

    1. The Free Dictionary.com defines a right as "something that is due to a person or governmental body by law, tradition, or nature." The pursuit of happiness, for example, is a right defined by human nature.
    2. According to The Free Dictionary.com, a privilege is "a special benefit, exemption from a duty, or immunity from penalty, given to a particular person, a group or a class of people."
