In what country?

Right means straight up, square, correct, the strong arm, a legal privilege. The common meaning to all those things is strength. You have a right to life, but only if you are strong enough to cling to it. You have a right to the space you occupy, but only if you are strong enough to defend it. You have a right to own property, but only if you can guard it from all attackers. You may obtain the services of a champion to defend your rights, or create a government for that purpose, but of course the champion's loyalty might become a concern, and governments always eventually renege on the contract.

Depending on what country you are in:
Education is not a right.
Bearing arms is part of the right of self defense, but that right is under attack in USA.
A citizen has a right to own property, but a house is still called "real", meaning "royal" because in many countries only royalty is allowed to own land or houses.

"Civil liberty" is a distraction to confuse people about what is a right and what is not.

Owning a house or the right to own one is a civil liberty.
The right to bear arms is a civil liberty.
The right to an education is a civil liberty. However it might intrude upon civil right if you block someone from an education or same quality of education because of their color.

An example of that would be whites only schools no blacks allowed.

"The six fundamental rights are right to equality, right to freedom, right against exploitation, right to freedom of religion, cultural and educational rights and right to constitutional remedies."

"....civil liberties may include the freedom of conscience, freedom of press, freedom of religion, freedom of expression, freedom of assembly, the right to security and liberty, freedom of speech, the right to privacy, the right to equal treatment under the law and due process, the right to a fair trial, and the right to life. Other civil liberties include the right to own property, the right to defend oneself, and the right to bodily integrity. Within the distinctions between civil liberties and other types of liberty, distinctions exist between positive liberty/positive rights and negative liberty/negative rights."

"Definition of civil rights for English Language Learners
: the rights that every person should have regardless of his or her sex, race, or religion."

An example of that is allowing same sex marriages. You cannot allow one segment of society to have their civil right to marry whom they want while denying another segment of society their civil rights.

Marriage is not a right. It is not a legal privilege. It is a natural condition. States have created a three-way corporation of man, woman, and the state and that is also called marriage, but it is not related to the natural condition.
