Quote of the Day

Another gem from Lomasky:

“Rights without foundations are treacherous entities. … Rights are so easy to claim, but so terribly difficult to justify. Naked appeals to intuition or moral insight too often supplant analysis, and, not surprisingly, one person’s right is another’s fantasy. The result can be pleasing only to the moral skeptic.” - Loren Lomasky, Persons, Rights, and the Moral Community vii (1987).
