Topic: Applying the Rights/Responsibility Lens
- Read an opinion piece in your local newspaper, or a well-known newspaper you regularly read (like the Wall Street Journal or the Washington Post). Find an example of the rights/responsibility lens being applied, and who was responsible for applying the lens? What distinctions were made between rights and equality of opportunity for everyone? How did the writer explore the motives of those making the decisions and taking action? Did the decision maker(s) use the gifts or the dark sides of the lens? Please explain.
- Be sure to provide citations and references for all your work, including the newspaper in which you found the article. Also include citations from your text and other sources when analyzing the rights/responsibility lens, the right of contract, and negative rights.
