whether rights have to be enforced to have substance in practice.
I’m questioning the claim that the enforcement has to come from a group for rights to exist.
We may not be comfortable with the idea; for rights to exist enforcement must originate from one’s own might but it doesn’t make it any less true.
If I’m walking down the street and get attacked by someone’s pet it is completely within my rights to defend myself to the death if need be. I’m not going to wait for my right-defense group to show up and protect me. Rights derive from self-ownership.
Thank you Ron for waking me up.
