Human beings possess a natural “instinct” for freedom, says Salman Rushdie. We prefer liberty to “unfreedom” and that instinct is related to self-consciousness—to knowledge of ourselves as autonomous beings in the world. Out of this “liberty instinct” comes the idea of human rights. These rights involve neither liberal nor Western fictions but rather connect to our deepest needs as human beings.
