  • question_answer How does society affect the implementation of rights?


    Every society makes certain rules to regulate one's conduct. They tell us what is right and what is wrong. What is recognised by the society as rightful becomes the basis of rights.

    (i) The notion of 'right' changes from time to time and society to society.
    (ii) When the socially recognised claims are written into law, they acquire real force. Otherwise, they remain merely as natural or moral rights.
    (iii) When law recognises some claims, they become enforceable. We then demand their application. When fellow citizens or the government do not respect these rights, we call it violation of our rights.
