Do rights exist? [View all]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rights

Rights are the fundamental normative rules about what is allowed of people or owed to people, according to some legal system, social convention, or ethical theory.


I see rights as attributes of people. Others see them as conventions or social inventions.


Your thoughts please.
