Good article. Especially the distinction between right and responsibility. Human rights are theoretically inborn, unearned, and passive. Responsibilities are activities we are expected to perform. Physical goods and services require activity and labor-- the physical world doesn't yield its wealth without some work, and the idea that we have a right to that wealth without earning it is fundamentally flawed. It misunderstands the relation between human want and material reality.
-- Traditional rights are negative, limiting government interference in private life. Material rights are a recent invention. Eleanor Roosevelt wrote them into the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights, but though "certified" they're still absurd.
