Just got a notice from the "Commonwealth of Virginia" (they're so formal about themselves. So majestic) telling me that "my privilege to operate a motor vehicle in Virginia is suspended."

How does one take away a privilege when it was never a privilege in the first place? Every American citizen has the right to move from point A to point B in their own vehicle in their own country. By doing so they violate no one's rights; threaten to violate no one's rights.

For the state to try and prevent this IS a violation of an American citizen's rights and therefore a crime. The gov't - whose role is to protect our rights - is the most prolific violator of those rights.
