Liberal vs Consertative views on Rights
Was listening to a radio talk show the other night. They were discussing whether or not housing is a right. That if it is a right the government should supply it to those who cannot afford it on their own.
Now while I also believe that everyone has a right to housing of some sort, I do not believe they have a right to make other people pay for it. Where do folks get the idea that if they have a right to do something that the state must pay for it if they personally can't? Can anyone point out when or where this idea came into being?
