"A person who has both rights and duties" is a concept that defines the most basic concept of the law. In U.S. law, a person is defined as having all of the rights specified in the first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution (the Bill of Rights), plus many rights that are not specified but are guaranteed anyway by the Ninth Amendment.
Most of a person’s legal duties are duties to abstain from certain actions, for example, to abstain from theft, harmful physical violence, or deception for profit. But a few legal duties require positive action, (i.e., to remove from one’s yard an attractive but dangerous object that might injure another person, and to pay income tax).
My Response: I think this view would be accepted as generally correct by most lawyers and judges. We have certain rights and restrictions as admened in the constitution. We as people need to mantain order and abide by laws. Even though we have guaranteed freedomed that could so easily be taken away. We shouldnt overstep our boundaries or take that extra mile wen its comes to the law.
