Rights are to perform certain actions or be in certain states. Rights tell humans what actions are prpoer and which are just. Rights make our law system the way it is today, for example it structures the forms of our government, and finally it shapes moral rights as we perceive it. Rights is to approve a distribution of freedom and authority. Their are many basic categories of life as we know for example the right to life, the right to do basically anything that we want as long as it follows the law. The study of a particular right is primarily an investigation of categories and sub categories and how they overlap. An analysis rights has two parts which are internal structure of rights, and a decription of what rights do for those who hold them. The four basic components of rights are know as "Hohfeldian incidents" after Welsey Hohfeldian, the American legal theorist who descovered them. The four basic elements are privileges, the claim, the power and immunity. An example of claim rights is a contract between the employer and the employee a right to be paided his wage. Primary rules are rules requiring that people perform or refrain from particular actions. Two further Hohefeldian incidents define what Hart called is secondary rules. Which are rules that specify how agents can introduce change, and annual primary rules. Powers can alter not only first order privilages and claims, but second order incidents as well. Immunities corresponding to an absence of a power in some other party alter the rightholders normative situation in some way. Molecular Rights have to deal with the privilage, claim, power, and immunity can be a right when it occurs in isolation. The second order of rights are your rights concerning the alteration of these first order rights. The holder of a negative right is entitled to non interference, while the holder of a positive right is entitled to provision of some good or service. The two main theories of function rights are the will theory and the interest theory. Each claims to capture our ordinary undrstanding of what rights do for those who hold them. The conflicts about rights is that some people dont follow them so why should they get get the same rights as a normal human being that follows the rules. The two approaches to justification of rights they are defined as deontogical and consequentialist. These are all the different definitions of rights that where used in this are that pretty much sums up this article that I read about rights
