It would be better, for the sake of linguistic clarity, to call the first passive rights, and the second active rights. All the inhabitants of a country ought to enjoy within it the passive rights of a citizen; all have a right to the protection of their person, of their property, of their liberty, etc.; but all do not have a right to take an active part in the formation of public powers: not all are active citizens... those who contribute nothing to the support of the public establishment, ought not to exercise an active influence on the public weal. (quoted, Forsyth, 1987, pp. 117-18)
