n. Legitimate authority to be, to have, or to do as one pleases; as the right to be a king, the right to do one's neighbor, the right to a taxpayer assistance, etc.
Sometimes what's right isn't as important as what's profitable.
— Trey Parker and Matt Stone
It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong.
Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.
— Mark Twain
