Rights VS Responsibilities

The word “rights” gets thrown around a lot these days. There’s often a lack of focus on the other side of the “rights” coin – “responsibility”.

“I have a right to a good job.” But How much responsibility do you have for earning that job? To be qualified for it? and show up on time?

“Everyone has the right to vacation.” How do you know that’s true? Do some people have the right to more vacation than others? How much of your responsibility is it to ask for or negotiate for your vacation?

“We all have the right to health care coverage.” Who is responsible for paying for it? The government? Who is that? Who is responsible for giving the government the money to pay for it?
