Palmer discusses the rise of social or welfare rights, as opposed to more traditional, individual rights.

In this short interview, Tom G. Palmer discusses the rise of social or welfare rights, as opposed to more traditional, individual rights. He points out that the problem with welfare rights is that they necessarily conflict, whereas individual rights do not. And that conflict will lead to corruption and favoritism by the state.
