For starters, I'd split "care", trying to conflate "you ought not people" with "you ought to help people" mixes up a lot of separate things. See, the debate between negative rights and positive rights.

The problem with positive rights, or "you ought to help people", is that it imposes active obligations on others to go out of their way and expend their resources to provide something. It's one thing to say "people can't take your food from you" (negative right), and an entirely different thing to say "people are obligation to make sure you have food" (positive right).

Another example -- you don't have a right to free speech in the sense that others are obligated to listen or obligated to provide a platform -- you have a right to free speech in that the goverment is very very constrained in what it can prevent you from saying or punish you for saying.
