On Social Rights: or, a Fiction Serving a Fiction

The adherents of collectivized ethics claim that "social rights" trump individual rights.

This conclusion, when read without committing the fallacy of conceptual realism, says that a fiction should serve another fiction. No wonder that the benefits of shaping interhuman relations along these lines are wholly fictitious as well.
