Is the following sentence correct grammatically? I refer to the double negation. Should I omit the word : DON'T?
But under no circumstances, we donít have the right to compel anybody.
"But under no circumstances, do we have the right to compel anybody." This is OK.
You could also write "We don't have the right to compel anybody under any circumstances."
