Rights: Positive Rights vs. Negative Rights

In this case, “negative” doesn’t mean what you might think:

A negative right = a right you were born with. A natural right.

A positive right = an artificial “right” which requires someone else’s labor or money in order for you to enjoy that “right” (e.g., free college, free healthcare).

Leftists embrace positive rights. Rightists embrace negative rights.

“The difference between negative vs positive rights is that one requires action while the other requires inaction. Negative rights are the requirements of someone else not to interfere in your ability to obtain something. Positive rights are a requirement of someone else to provide you with something.

You may hear negative rights referred to as “liberties,” and that’s because they are basic human and civil rights stating that no one can interfere with our right to obtain something through trade or bartering.

Positive rights are often called “entitlements” because they are things that someone must provide to us, whether we’ve earned them or not. We don’t have to do anything to obtain positive rights; they’re granted to us.”
