Abstract

In the beginning (we are told) there were people with rights. These rights concerned life, health, and liberty. People could also create rights, by finding or making things, and could transfer rights to others, by gifts and exchange. These rights determine the limits of morally justifiable conduct: any act that infringes on a right is morally indefensible; any act within the limits of one's rights, and any consequence of exercising them, is morally unobjectionable.
