American citizens need to learn what is and isn't a right.
Natural unalienable individual rights are the only true rights. They're not granted to you by anyone. Unalienable means they can't be take from you by the government or majority rule.
Anything granted is either a privilege or a favor. The government grants privileges, not rights. They control all aspects of it and can take it from you anytime.
Our Declaration of Independence declares the nation and each individual to be free and independent. Your life is your own. Our Constitution protects those rights by restricting what the government can do, because humans have always tried to control other humans, and historically government becomes the oppressor. The "common good" is subjective and claimed by past dictators.
No government or economic system created by humans will ever eliminate the injustices of this world.
