Conservatives and liberals often agree about basic rights and argue only about how exactly to define and apply them. But we are increasingly talking past each other, as we disagree over which rights even exist. A major example: conservatives are more and more asserting strong property and other economic rights, while progressives often act as if rights do not apply in these areas at all.
 
Lecture by Gerard Alexander, Associate Professor and Director of the Honors Program at the University of Virginia and author of "The Sources of Democratic Consolidation," with comments to follow by Michael White, Professor of Philosophy and Law, Sandra Day O’Connor School of Law.
