This is a quote from the book "The ​Virtue Of Selfishness" by Ayn Rand
...state of one of today’s most crucial issues: political rights versus “ economic rights.” It’s either-or. One destroys the other. But there are, in fact, no “economic rights,” no “c ollective rights,” no “public-interest rights.” The term “individual rights” is a redundancy: there is no other kind of rights and no one else to possess them.

Those who
advocate laissez-faire capitalism are the only advocates of man’s rights.

(April 1963)
