Definitional issues[ edit ] Rights are widely regarded as the basis of law, but what if laws are bad?
Some theorists suggest civil disobedience is, itself, a right, and it was advocated by thinkers such as Henry David ThoreauMartin Luther King Jr. There is considerable disagreement about what is meant precisely by the term rights.
It has been used by different groups and thinkers for different purposes, with different and sometimes opposing definitions, and the precise definition of this principle, beyond having something to do with normative rules of some sort or another, is controversial.
One way to get an idea of the multiple understandings and senses of the term is to consider different ways it is used. Many diverse things are claimed as rights: Children's rights, animal rights, workers' rights, states' rights, the rights of peoples. What actions or states or objects the asserted right pertains to: Rights of free expression, to pass judgment; rights of privacy, to remain silent; property rights, bodily rights.
Why the rightholder allegedly has the right: Moral rights spring from moral reasons, legal rights derive from the laws of the society, customary rights are aspects of local customs. How the asserted right can be affected by the rightholder's actions: The inalienable right to life, the forfeitable right to liberty, and the waivable right that a promise be kept.
Natural versus legal[ edit ] Main article: Natural and legal rights Natural rights are rights which are "natural" in the sense of "not artificial, not man-made", as in rights deriving from human nature or from the edicts of a god.
They are universal; that is, they apply to all people, and do not derive from the laws of any specific society.
They exist necessarily, inhere in every individual, and can't be taken away. For example, it has been argued that humans have a natural right to life. These are sometimes called moral rights or inalienable rights.
Legal rights, in contrast, are based on a society's customs, laws, statutes or actions by legislatures.
An example of a legal right is the right to vote of citizens. Citizenshipitself, is often considered as the basis for having legal rights, and has been defined as the "right to have rights".
Legal rights are sometimes called civil rights or statutory rights and are culturally and politically relative since they depend on a specific societal context to have meaning.
Some thinkers see rights in only one sense while others accept that both senses have a measure of validity. There has been considerable philosophical debate about these senses throughout history. For example, Jeremy Bentham believed that legal rights were the essence of rights, and he denied the existence of natural rights; whereas Thomas Aquinas held that rights purported by positive law but not grounded in natural law were not properly rights at all, but only a facade or pretense of rights.
Claim versus liberty[ edit ] A deed is an example of a claim right in the sense that it asserts a right to own land. This particular deed dates back to Claim rights and liberty rights A claim right is a right which entails that another person has a duty to the right-holder.
Somebody else must do or refrain from doing something to or for the claim holder, such as perform a service or supply a product for him or her; that is, he or she has a claim to that service or product another term is thing in action.
This duty can be to act or to refrain from acting. For example, many jurisdictions recognize broad claim rights to things like "life, liberty, and property"; these rights impose an obligation upon others not to assault or restrain a person, or use their property, without the claim-holder's permission.
Likewise, in jurisdictions where social welfare services are provided, citizens have legal claim rights to be provided with those services. Liberty rights and claim rights are the inverse of one another: Likewise, if a person has a claim right against someone else, then that other person's liberty is limited.
For example, a person has a liberty right to walk down a sidewalk and can decide freely whether or not to do so, since there is no obligation either to do so or to refrain from doing so.
But pedestrians may have an obligation not to walk on certain lands, such as other people's private property, to which those other people have a claim right.
So a person's liberty right of walking extends precisely to the point where another's claim right limits his or her freedom. Positive versus negative[ edit ] Main article: Negative and positive rights In one sense, a right is a permission to do something or an entitlement to a specific service or treatment from others, and these rights have been called positive rights.
However, in another sense, rights may allow or require inaction, and these are called negative rights; they permit or require doing nothing.Being a Secret Service agent isn't as action-packed as they make it seem in the movies.
