I wish for all law-abiding people: “life, liberty”, equality before the law, legal recourse when rights or privacy are violated, presumption of innocence until proven guilty, and the right to appeal conviction. I’d outlaw discrimination (by race, sex, color, nationality, language, sexual orientation), arbitrary arrest, torture, inhuman treatment and servitude. I’d grant freedom— of movement, speech and creative expression (exempting what is hateful or hurtful to society), assembly, religion, to fair compensation for work, and to choose a marriage partner.
