A right is something a person has that people think should not be taken away from them. A right is different than a privilege, which is something that must be earned.

Examples

  • People may also have a "right to property". That means that people cannot steal things from each other.
  • In many countries people have a "right to free speech", which means other people cannot stop them from saying what they want to.
