Right to Privilege?

The natural historical state of humans is poverty. Thus, poverty is not what needs to be explained, but wealth.

The natural historical medicine available to humans has been local herbs and magic. Modern medicine is a recent technological development, and it is a wonderful development that has given us longer and better lives. But like all technological advancements that improved our lives, it is a privilege to have it. Does it make sense to argue that one has a right to a privilege?
