Some advocates of human rights believe everyone deserves shelter, food and the capability to pay bills.
I find this kind of negative as it ignores the cost of providing these things. Invariably they are the same people who want to tax more and want you to assign YOUR money to these needs.

People may agree to basic human needs, but what ensures that they are met, are the creative social processes. You may say that there's a right to association, as per article 11, but unless information technologies are developed that enable people to get together, it cannot be "paid for". Those "social creative processes" gradually and incrementally ensure the capabilities that are needed to "pay for" human rights.
