What are rights?

by Learn Liberty

Individuals have rights. But are they natural? And how do they compare and contrast with legal or constitutional rights? Are legal or constitutional rights similar to those inalienable rights mentioned in the Declaration of Independence?

He concludes that legal systems should create rights that are compatible with natural rights.
