I have to write a debate with for and against arguments about whether one person's rights are another person's responsibilities. It's for GCSE citizenship Homework.

Could someone give me some brief points on this to help get me started? Thanks

This may be way off, but points like;
- someones write to freedom of speech leads to another responsibility to stop violent protests
- my write to clean water is another persons responsibility to provide it
- my write to a fair trial is others responsibility to be a judge\jury

hopefully that helps!

Here's a counter - that everyone's rights are their and others responsibilities. Ie one is responsible for their own rights and emotions as are everyone else's.

Think about the legal side, so you have the following

ie
Discrimination act
Human Rights acts
Disability acts

So

You may have those break the human rights laws (legal responsibility to treat people to a standard), and also disability, race, sex etc. Are they responsible for their actions or is someone else for letting them do it?
