I had a lot of questions on Twitter after our short conversation about rights. I've been doing this so long that sometimes I forget we have people who are new to the idea of positive and negative rights, and so I thought it would be a good idea to discuss them using a few simple examples.
Libertarians believe in and support Negative Rights since they do not conflict. Positive rights on the other hand often conflict with someone's Negative Rights. Because of this most libertarians reject the idea of Postive Rights outside of those imposed by contract.
This will be more clear after you listen to today's show but I wanted to give you a taste of what you're going to hear.
For most of these kids, the opportunity to teach was squandered. Sad.
