Rights To Action

"Observe that all legitimate rights have one thing in common: they are rights to action, not to rewards from other people. The American rights impose no obligations on other people, merely the negative obligation to leave you alone. The system guarantees you the chance to work for what you want — not to be given it without effort by somebody else."

-- Dr. Leonard Peikoff, from a speech titled 'Healthcare Is Not A Right'

That is an excellent quote. Now I'm going to go read the rest of the speech. Thank you!
