Rights & Recognition with David Utsler
Show Notes

Are there any prerequisites for claiming a right or liberty? Vexation over personal liberties may be caused by a fundamental misunderstanding about what a right is and how it works. Dr. David Utsler (North Central College, Texas) discusses how our identities are formed by the environment and how recognition of individual identities is a key requirement for possessing rights and liberties.
