Abstract: First paragraph: The language of rights is used broadly: to encompass such important matters as human rights, criminal law rights, the rights of citizenship, and such trivialities as my right to park in the space I purchased, your right to feel aggrieved at my rudeness, a fouled footballer’s right to a free kick; it also encompasses rights borne by nonpersons such as animals, babies or groups.
