Pedestrianism tells you what people think about ‘rights’. The ones that step right in front of a car because they have the right, have reified rights as an actual substance. Those who are always apologizing, and walk as though they’re in everyone’s way, consider rights as unreal as they do personal identity. The ones who act as though a car can kill them, but still demand you slow down, are the ones who equate rights with respect.
