why do some groups have collective rights and not others

The list of rights protected in the Constitution were those rights  that the Founders believed would be most likely for a tyrannical  government to infringe upon.   
There were also rights that were not protected because they come in  direct conflict with other rights. For example, the Right of  Reputation and the Right to Free Speech come into conflict since  negative speech could harm reputation; but the Founders believed  that Free Speech was more important that the Right of Reputation.    There were also rights that the Founders did not believe should be  given, but that later generations thought were worth protecting,  such as the Right to be a Free Man.
