Quotable Heinlein  

The basis of all morality is duty, a concept with the same relation to group that self-interest has to individual. Nobody preached duty to these kids in a way they could understand--that is, with a spanking. But the society they were in told them endlessly about their 'rights.'

The result of which should have been predictable, since a human being has no natural rights of any nature.
