(p.215) 10 Conclusion
A Political Theory of Rights

Attracta Ingram

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents a synthesis of the concept of rights against the state discussed in this volume. It argues that the difference between a libertarian and social-democratic liberal state is not merely the differences in the packages of rights associated with each. The content of each package differs in each case because the structure of rights is different. It is a mistake to defend self-ownership on the grounds of autonomy, since the two are incompatible.

Keywords:   rights, self-ownership, autonomy, state
