    I would personally place most of those under "Right to Life". The Right to Life includes everything necessary for survival; the right to food and water, the right to protect oneself, etc.

    Also, I don't believe Freedom of Speech exists within any area controlled by any Government or authority.

    Freedom of speech, the freedom from want, from fear, the freedom of the press, to vote, belief, equal protection under the law, to trail, information, and education (in no particular order). I'm sure I'm leaving out some important ones, but that's the risk you take when making a list like this.

    Its really hard to order the list, but I'd say property, life and speech belong on top. A lot of the other rights would fall under those three. For example, you are free to protect your property with a firearm.

    Possibly the right to basic needs, right of freedom of expression/thought, freedom of association, and then security and private property rights. Er, are we supposed to choose from the list you provided or is that your own ranking/answer?
