Lies the Government Told You: Myth, Power, and Deception in American History
The Judge makes a distinction between rights and goods per a question about the "right" to heath care. But any such right would violate someone else's rights, because you can't have the right to a good, be it the right to health care or the right to food or clothing, without making a claim on the life of another. Whether that claim is in the form of the theft called taxes (to pay for your "right") or in the time and services of the supplier of that good (Doctors who must treat you because you have a "right" to their talents in the field of medicine), it is in fact destructive of real rights (the right to the fruits of one's labor and the right to be free from coercion and slavery), and so cannot be a right itself.
