From The Catholic Encyclopedia:
Every perfect right, i.e. every right involving in others an obligation in justice a deference thereto, to be efficacious, and consequently a real and not an illusory power, carries with it at the last appeal the subsidiary right of coercion. A perfect right, then, implies the right of physical force…
…And consequently of violence. The multiplication of rights is therefore a multiplication of possible acts of violence. There is something frightening about the expansion of rights.
The move in modern times has been to increase the individual’s sense that his rights are his own, while at the same time centralizing the use of the violence which backs them. Even if we allow that violence should be exercised only by a group, I wonder if any right and the violence it authorizes are separable to the extent that the one can belong to the individual while the other belongs to a Leviathan with whom no given individual has a human relationship.
