Right About Rights

Mark Steyn again.  God love him.  I've said it before, but I swear he and Jonah Goldberg bring more sanity to the written page than any two other men currently scribbling.  So, one more time:  God lov'em.

Anyway, this week's NRO piece is about how we've turned our understanding of rights entirely on its head.  Rights have ceased to be mostly about constraining the government and have somehow become in this topsy-turvy world of ours about empowering it, empowering it to compel.

As always, he's worth the read.
