Mayhew aimed just to file the realities of the negative from a compassionate and useful outlook.

The ‘mutual incompatibility’ of positive duties of this type is taken to rule out the possibility of ‘universal positive obligations’ in the libertarian framework. Nozick contends that the entire set of individual rights that satisfy these conditions comprises a set of negative rights that is associated with exclusively negative duties of omission and restraint. g. with the person or property) are admissible in this framework. However, fundamental freedoms and human rights that are limited by resources and/or other feasibility constraints (such as the human rights to an adequate standard of living, food, and health) are viewed as generating ‘conﬂicting positive obligations’ and are ruled out by the model.
This application of the human rights as a ‘minimum criterion of justice’ is a far-reaching departure from the ‘outcome-independent’ theories developed by Hayek (1960, 1982a, 1982b, 1982c) and Nozick (1974). In particular, it involves evaluating the fairness of global economic order in terms of the fairness of the outcomes achieved, as well as the fairness of procedures. Whilst proceeding on the assumption that human rights correlate with fundamental negative duties, Pogge maintains that under particular empirical circumstances these negative duties entail ‘derived duties to perform positive actions’ (in Pogge’s terminology, ‘positive obligations’), including an important category of ‘positive derived duties’ to make compensating protection and reform.
3 In practice, however, Nozick fails to develop an ethical system that is entirely independent of the evaluation of end-states. For example, he concedes the possibility of a limited role for consequences in ethical evaluation in his treatment of the ‘Lockean proviso’, stating that: ‘A process normally giving rise to a property right in a previously un-owned thing will not do so if the position of others no longer at liberty to use the thing is thereby worsened’ (ibid. 178). 2 Broadening the Reach of Negative Theories of Fundamental Freedom and Human Rights Inﬂuential theories in the liberal as well as the libertarian tradition have also suggested that impartiality in ethics requires the development of exclusively negative characterizations of fundamental freedoms and human rights.
