Welcome to the official podcast of the Chalcedon Foundation hosted by Mark Rushdoony, Martin Selbrede, and Andrea Schwartz.

“The rights of man” is a political doctrine, and this is basic to its error. The assumption is that man’s freedom depends on and must come from the state. Now, certainly, the state can be a major enemy to man’s freedom, but it cannot be seen as the source of liberty.

A “duty” is an obligation we owe to God or man, or to both. A “right” is a claim we make on the world, on men, and even on God, as in Adam’s case, who claimed with Eve the “right” to be as God (Gen. 3:5). The two are seriously at odds in our culture because we are at odds with God. A duty can be a legal obligation, but it is also always a moral obligation.

This is the subject of Episode 29 of the Chalcedon Podcast.
