  • "Human rights" is a concoction of the UN, defined by them, for their purposes, to justify sanctions and military action against their enemies, anywhere on the planet. That is why the UN says they are "universal", because the UN wants to be able to dictate the rules over the entire world and beyond. They encompass ALL humans because the UN wants to control ALL human actvity.

    The true reality is, that there is no such thing as a right. Nowhere in the fabric of the universe is More..

  • That UN list of human rights is bullshit, I've seen this list before. To sum it up and to give you a few examples, The UN Declaration of Human Rights is more of a list of societal privileges...

    #22 is an outright lie.

    #25(2) completely contradicts #2.

    #30 is not a right, only a definition of it.

    I could go on, but if you consider a definition, a lie, and a contradiction as rights, nothing I say will get through to you.

  • First we have to define HUMAN. A lot of the people in the LL videos may not qualify.

      True but this is why our constitution is such a great document. Even though some of our founders were not GOD fearing, they understood that our rights came from GOD or a higher power, eliminating man from the equation. If man is allowed to give us rights, man will take them away. Brilliant document, wish more people would read it. Just takes about 15 minutes.

    • @bigair I don't see how it is possible to "understand" that the rights you just made up from your own head are somehow "god given". I can see how you would IMAGINE that they are god given, because they seem to make sense to you, and you suppose god would make sense, but it is still pure conjecture. Man is absolutely essential in defining his own rights and taking them away, because from god, there is nothing but silence. There is no reason to assume that there even are any ri More..

  • The UN declaration is more like a legal Charta to preserve the interest of big shots (countries).
    In mine perspective Human Rights are simple.
    A simple rule that America denies its own people is to live freely and let others to live; but with the “freedom” to possess a gun (!), every American is in danger as the 80.000 murders per year advise us. Remember what the Philosopher said: Your freedom ends when mine begins.
    Some other simple/fundamental Human rights are the right to access water More..

  • Magna Charta is actually a law enforced upon the king of england by big land owners, pretending it was for the masses.

  • This was a very well made movie, however there are some age old misinterpretations. We ALL have the right to be treated as equals, but everyone has to agree that we are all different. Some are more educated, some are fine with living off the taxpayer when they are capable of working (stealing). Some people have honor, Some people are poor, some are rich, some have a faith which is not detrimental to their souls or others lives, some have a faith which does them no ultimate good and harms those w More..

  • The scope of those so-called UN Human'rights' are so wide that they are contradictory.

    For instance - a right to food can only be achieved by forcibly taking food off a food provider to give to someone else. Thus the food provider's rights have been trampled by the 'right to food' of someone else.

    The only way to have a consistent set of universal human rights is to narrow them down to "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness".

  • Muslim countries do not adhere to these rights, for them is completely foreign concept. Mainly because for them is based in Christian dichtonomy, they have their own version of "human rights".

  • Human rights are those things quoted by those who want to evade their responsibilities.
