Note on rights

Assume arguendo that we’ve established that dealers of crack cocaine are systematically treated unjustly in law, by the courts, and in public opinion. It wouldn’t follow from this that to redress these problems would require the advancement of “crack dealer rights”.

Rights assume we are working within the realm of goods, either because the things themselves are good, or at least because it is good to tolerate them (though this second class is murky and not straightforward).
