Anyone reading this?
I'm reading it, but I think "the source of rights" is either obvious or overwrought. Legal rights, clearly, come from the laws, regulations, constitutions, court rulings, and so forth that establish them. Other rights, whatever you call them (moral rights, divine rights, natural rights, inalienable rights, etc.) are just made up.
That pretty well covers it.
