Rights, Incentives & the Bitcoin System

What are rights and can Bitcoin enable us to make better sense of them?

It is very common to hear that education is a “right,” that healthcare, a fair salary, etc are all “rights” that we can demand of others and are entitled to. Can this be the case? How do they conflict with the more basic rights of the control over our own lives, our right to choose, and the rights to our bodies? Can we simply declare that the things we want or need are rights and this means we can have as much of it as we would like?

We get into all of it in today’s Guy’ Take on human rights and how Bitcoin provides an excellent test case for why universal rights are necessary for both a communications and political network to succeed.
