Which Type Of Rights Ensure Equal Treatment Under The Law?
Civil rights are the rights that ensure equal treatment under the law.
The Enlightenment political philosophers, especially John Locke, held to the idea of natural rights. They believed men were born with guaranteed rights from their Creator or nature, and no government devised by man had the right to take away these rights without just cause. These philosophers held the rights of life, liberty, and property as the most basic natural rights.
