Meaning of Duty1. Is a term that conveys a sense of moral commitment or obligation to someone or something2. Should result in action3. It is not a matter of passive feeling or mere recognition4. Recognize & commit your self to its fulfillment without considering your own self-interest5. Does not Mean: Living a life of duty entirely precludes a life of leisure;6. However, its fulfillment generally involves some sacrifice of immediate self-interest.

They are fundamental normative rules about what is allowed of people or owed to people, according to some legal system, social convention, or ethical theory3. Rights structure the form of governments, the content of laws, and the shape of morality as it is currently perceived
