well morals believe it or not is relative, relative to those in a agreement, which is the agreed morals, or rules, or behavior, or this for that.

as I say, I'm a moral realist (specifically, a natural rights libertarian), so -- no -- I don't believe that.

Every right is opposed by a responsibility. If you have the right to x, everyone else has the responsibility to let you do x without interference.

Natural rights end as soon as you start forming a civilisation, which is a contract specifying what you'll compromise on in order to get the specified benefits.
