Lina Sandoval English 1A-Mr Voth August 26 2000 RESPONSE TO TAKING RIGHTS SERIOUSLY After reading the essay Taking Rights Seriously by Ronald Dworkin I realized that I dont really pay any particular attention to our rights or even the limits to them I didnt even know there was a dispute of what particular rights we as citizens have Dworkin says that the Government will have the last word on what an individuals rights are because its police will do what its officials and courts say I think it is the governments job to decide how to define our rights that is why we vote them into office because it is a difficult job and if we left it to the people they probably would not give themselves enough limits If the government gives society to much freedom than there would no respect for the laws and people would be running wild doing whatever they wanted But if the government gives society to little freedom and sets limits on their rights than people would be complaining because they would feel that the government is taking over their rights So there must be a balance between the rights of the individual and the demands of society at large There for our government officials must be very careful on how they define our rights because a mistake on one side is as serious as a mistake on the other The government has to compromise and stay in the middle it cannot give one person more freedom than another person As for our freedom of speech I think it is important to speak your mind in a non-provocative way on the matters of your political concern but there is a limit on what is acceptable Such as rioting and putting people in danger then I see why there should be limits I do believe that the constitution is a well-written document Of course it is not
