Right, or rights?

I subscribe to a lot of RSS feeds and e-mail lists. One of the e-mail lists is for a country store in Ohio called Lehmans. You might have heard of them. Anyway, yesterday they had a blog post worth reading. Here is a good snippet:

The distinction between arguing over right and arguing over your rights may be small. But, it must be understood. Sticking to what is right is important; it may even be important enough to sacrifice your life for. But merely wanting to be right, or insisting on winning for the sake of winning, is just plain wrong.

A vital distinction that sadly tends to get lost in the heat of the moment...
