Posted 01-18-2013 at 03:08 PM by xan

In political theory, a positive right is a right that is accorded to you by society. In contrast, a negative right is a right that society can take away from you.

Examples of positive rights are things like education, health care, vacations, police and fire protection. Positive rights are things that society allows you to add to yourself.
