Reviewing some more old posts, and found this one (The Clue Meter: Definition of the Day, 03/28/2010):

Definition of the Day, 03/28/2010

So, there I was, trying to craft a really deep, profound, post on the nature of "human rights" and how to define what is, and is not, a human right.
Still struggling with it.

So I go to Google Reader and start reading... reading... Gun Blogger IV participant's blogs... reading... What's Chuck up to...?

Damn it, he summed it up better than I could.

A great litmus test is this:  Does this right have to be provided by someone or something?
If the answer is yes, then it isn't a right.
OK, so a "litmus test" is not a definition, but still.  
 The topic of  "The nature of human rights" came up recently in a Pistol-Forums thread a week or so ago, I may have to seek that thread out and post there...
