Everyone is talking about rights, but they seem to be talking about different things. Why is that?
In this episode, the SPP team tackles the differences between positive and negative rights. Even for those not highly interested in politics, it’s been nearly inescapable over the last several months, and there has been a lot of talk about this on both sides of the spectrum. The difference to be found is that some prevent someone from doing something to you, and others entitle a person to a thing. It’s easy to blanketly choose one side or the other, but join us in taking a deeper look at both sides.
