A common assertion – almost a slogan – in discussions about rights is that there should be “no rights without responsibilities”.
It has a superficial attraction as a proposition; but to those who say this I have one question:
What responsibilities must we fulfil in return for our right not to be tortured?
To those who parrot "no rights without responsibilities" I ask simply: What duties must I fulfill in return for my right not to be tortured?
