How many wrongs make a right?

2013-06-10 rights and wrongs

While I am sorting out my thoughts on religions, let me give you a quick one on one of my recent subjects: rights.

I came across this video on Learnliberty.org. Watch it, it’s only four minutes. I highly recommend the site, this is the first video I am having issues with.  (…..and if you do not want to watch it, you can find the transcript at the end of this post.)
