Articles: Human Rights, Defined Correctly

Natural rights have four main features:

•They are universal (they apply to everyone, everywhere);

•They are unchanging (they stay the same, from generation to generation);

•They are unalienable (they cannot be taken away by a government);

•They are negative (they are the right to not be killed, the right to not be physically restrained, the right to not be robbed, and so on).

They do NOT include rights to things that must be supplied by others; housing, healthcare, food, education, etc. Or respect. You have no right to my respect.
