In my original message I meant 'natural right' as a
right that it is proper by any sufficiently advanced
moral system to grant to all sentient beings.
This may not be the way people always use this phrase.
Also, I suggest you (Gordon) adopt a less cocksure
attitude. As in when seeing a seeming error on
another's part, trying to see what they really mean
instead of assuming they are simply incorrect. This
attitude is in my experience both more correct and can
lead to less interpersonal problems.
