On Human Rights

Iloilo M. Jones - Ilo asks us to think about human rights. So many are proposing positive "rights" these days, things that they expect the rest of humanity to give them, meaning somebody else should be forced to pay. Nonsense. Only negative rights are true rights. The right to unmolested action, absolutely any action that doesn't infringe on another person's rights.

What human rights am I willing to grant to every other individual human?

What are the rights I want for myself? These two sets should match, point for point, or you need to work on your definition of human rights.

Now you will begin to more effectively comprehend what are, and what are not, Human Rights.

Please share your lists of Human Rights here, so that we may all learn. Your comments welcome.
