This is a critical review of John Simmons's book, Justification and Legitimacy: Essays on Rights and Obligations (Cambridge 2001). The thrust of the critique is to insist that Lockeans provide a basis for their selective voluntarism about duties and obligations.

Keywords: rights, obligations, legitimacy, voluntarism, Locke
