I was ruminating the other day on rights.....and then reading today in The Art of Happiness that the Dalai Lama believes that all humans have a right to happiness, and a right to survive. Even the Dalai Lama thinks we have rights. I'm mulling on this one still. I don't think we have any right to happiness. Certainly doesn't happen for everyone all the time, so who can assure such a right? Who can give it? Without god I don't see a way to justify the concept of rights. I wonder how the Dalai Lama does it.
