Example text

Some think not. For example, we have already noticed that Hart suggests that liberties warrant description as rights only when they are accompanied by protective claim-rights. In the next chapter, I shall emphasise the centrality of the idea of a title to that of a right and I think it is that idea which holds the clue to why people sometimes hesitate to describe liberties as rights.
