The Difference Between Rights and Entitlements »

Some people, especially so-called progressives, do not seem to understand the difference between rights and entitlements. So, for their edification, I’m going to try to explain the distinction between these two concepts.

Rights are God-given. Other people can take them away, and may also defend them for you, but they cannot give them to you. Rights include the freedom to do as one pleases (within certain limitations) and the opportunity …

We Should Learn from Socialism's Collapse »

We would all be wise to take warning from the recent events in Greece that have led to jitters in our stock market as well as markets around the world. The problems in Greece, of course, were caused created by socialism.
