"When liberals speak of "rights," they refer to the moral justification to use force against others. Their conception of "rights" is completely opposite to natural rights. It is about force rather than freedom. The "right" to health care is actually a "right" to force others to provide health care. The "right" to a minimum standard of living is the "right" to force others to pay for that minimum standard of living."

Your post ignores the fact that everyone has WILLINGLY surrendered some of their individual rights for the betterment of society when they are a citizen.

Most intellectually mature people recognize the benefits they recieve from this agreement.
