Topic: Ayn Rand's Theory of Rights What are rights—where do they come from—how do we know it? In this webinar, Craig Biddle will present the essentials of Ayn Rand's theory of rights, showing how its principles are derived from perceptual reality; differentiating it from traditional theories, including "God-given" rights, "government-granted" rights, and "natural" rights; and explaining why advocates of liberty must embrace Rand's theory if they wish to succeed in establishing and maintaining freedom
