Write what you mean. If it turns out that you meant something other
than what you communicated, you'll improve your writing when you have
to explain it again.
Furthermore, I didn't even say anything about the use of the term
`natural rights' until someone started to base their arguments on it.
If you talk about `natural rights' but argue like you mean something
else, then I'll let it slide. If you talk about natural rights and
seem to mean natural rights, then we have a problem.
In general, if you say X and X is wrong but you really meant Y, I'll
leave you alone. If you say X and X is wrong and you seem to mean X,
then it's time to say something.
