    Is a right delayed a right denied?

    We're all familiar with the famous quote from MLK2:

    "A right delayed is a right denied"

    Is this sound?
    Does this argument apply to all rights, or only certain rights?
    If not all, then which ones?
    Why does it not apply to those you excluded?

    We cannot suffer expedient relief from all of lifes perceived injustices.
    If the law is reasonable tending to its own errors then we remain its benefactors. Even if it is slow the reward is tendered to the advocate eventually. The governments role is fulfilled.

    Well, actually, I wasn't familiar with that quote.

    But in response, I would say it is partially correct.

    "A right delayed" is indeed "a right denied" in that any delay denies temporarily.

    If it's a delay only because of processing time, or whatever, then that seems reasonable.

    Re: Is a right delayed a right denied?

    I'm inclined to say yes... but then again, circumstances are important.

    How much delay? For what purpose? How do the duration and purpose of the delay relate to the exercise of the right in importance and urgency?

    Re: Is a right delayed a right denied?

    I'll have to go with a No vote, because rights, unless they are considered natural rights, evolve and change with humanity. Before something has been declared legally a right, whoever did not enjoy that right prior to enactment wasn't denied, but the right just did not exist at the time.

    So you dsagree, and a right delayed is NOT a right denied.

    depends. If you are delayed in voting past the time the poll closes t han your right delayed is a right denied. If you try to buy a gun and have to wait and are then killed or robbed-again that is a denial of a right

    Re: Is a right delayed a right denied?

    The poll needs a 'sort of' option or something like that. A right delayed is denied for the time that it is delayed. This is possibly okay depending on why it is being delayed.

    What the **** is MLK2? To answer the question; yes.
