I had always thought that the idea of a Right always stood for an action. I work to buy a house. I work to buy a car. I work to buy food. These activities are right for me to do in order to live, no? I am asking because many of my comrades say that I have it reversed. They say a Right is the thing that I am after. I have a right to a house. I have a right to a car. I have a right to groceries.
