1. Civil Liberties are our guaranteed rights that are either in the Bill of Rights, or our Constitution. The first amendment has most of the civil liberties including freedom of speech, religion, press, and assembly. They are viewed negatively because they can’t be changed, and are set in stone in our constitution. They are revolutionary because it was the first time our fore fathers had individual guaranteed freedoms granted to them. Civil rights are usually viewed as positive and evolutionary because they usually deal with the unequal treatment of minority groups. They are evolutionary because they challenge the status quo of society. Civil rights fight for equal treatment based on gender, race, ethnicity, etc.
