Best Answer

In some political philosophy circles negative rights mean freedom from, not freedom to.

I.E Freedom of expression means freedom form government censorship; not that anyone needs to give you your own website or newspaper.

Negative human rights, are human rights which only refer to things the government can't do.

For example, Article 9 of the UN human rights charter "No one will be subjected to arbitrary Arrest,Detention, or Exile" Merely limits the power of states to act against their citizens, it does not obligate and government to activiely do anything.

Negative rights are rights that are respected by inaction. For example, privacy is a negative right since people can respect your right to privacy by not doing things that violate your privacy.
