History of rights[edit]

Hello Eringordon, I think your addition of the Magna Carta to the list of historical documents that show the evolution of human rights is beneficial to the page. However, one addition that might be useful is to include information on how the Magna Carta influenced later documents, such as the United States Constitution.

RightsRight (principle) – use singular 73.154.175.89 (talk) 21:49, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

What is the rationale? My sense is the term rights is more of a general conception, while right refers to a specific freedom or entitlement. Like, in the US, a police officer says "read him his rights", while the term right is more often used in a specific instance, such as a right to speak freely or a right to defense counsel. And, if the term "rights" is used in pretty much any sentence, it is referring to what this article is about, so my sense is the current article title is fitting. Wonder what others think.--Tomwsulcer (talk) 22:00, 14 October 2015 (UTC) So unless there is more of a reason put forth, regarding the requested move, I Oppose.--Tomwsulcer (talk) 08:33, 15 October 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose Agreed with Tom, also c.f. extensive prior discussion about this subject that always come back down to leaving it here. --Pfhorrest (talk) 03:00, 15 October 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose. The current title adequately disambiguates its subject from other uses of "right" without requiring artificial parenthetical disambiguation. Changing that would require a very good reason, which I don't see here. 209.211.131.181 (talk) 03:38, 15 October 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose, per the rationales expressed above. The concept discussed in this article is usually referred to in the plural form (see, e.g., the SEP entry for "Rights"). -- Notecardforfree (talk) 08:37, 15 October 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose per the above responses. Calidum 03:09, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page or in a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

There is no mention of religious rights in the template[edit]

What the Heading says... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 116.75.41.49 (talk) 14:10, 10 November 2016 (UTC)

Is there an article on religious rights? If so, you can add it to the template, or request someone else do so on its talk page. --Pfhorrest (talk) 00:07, 11 November 2016 (UTC)
