If an old Southern Slave

If an old Southern Slave Owner were to write a bill of rights for his African American Workers... this would be it!

You only need one 'protected' right

You have countless rights, but only one needs to be protected.

The right of the individual to disassociate and free himself from the bonds of any government, at any time, and without any penalty, shall not be infringed.

Anyway the UN charter of rights is an old joke. Any list of 'rights' that fails to enumerate the right of self defense by arms is a trap.

yes, it looks like they weasel out of it with this statement:

Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law,

With rights comes responsibilitity, a bill of responsibilities?

I think the founders understood that so well they didn't think they had to write it down. Like the responsibility to feed oneself. What? Like freedom of assembly, freedom of speech and freedom of religion doesn't come along with free food? WTF, LOL They would be shocked if they saw what we did to their constitution and country.

lol

I think this was written by a 6th grader. What a joke.

This was written by people who have no clue of natural rights.

Bunch of charlatans wishing to eventually enslave.

Arbitrary

i see the word arbitrary appears alot, so wahts arbitrary, maybe their meaning of arbitrary is arbitrary. NSA doesn't do arbitrary surveilence they have reasons to believe your sisters cousins best friends grandma's pen pal from 1945 had children who eventually knew someone in the taliban AND BAM its not arbitrary anymore.

So when the UN says they cant violate your rights arbitrarily they just mean the gov can do so whenever as long as it gives a reason no matter how BS that reason is, its no longer an arbitrary violation

meow

My Congressman

wrote that this Universal Rights document would "uphold the same basic principles of liberty and freedom enshrined within the United State Constitution and Bill of Rights."

try this one on for size

"...the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately." Thomas Jefferson

When seeking to reform an oppressive legal system, an explanation to one's community is due. Each one of us find the following to be true:
• Initiating nonconsensual harm, regardless of intention, is the primary source of human suffering.
• No individual or group is inherently superior to another;
• No individual or group has the rightful authority to initiate direct, proximate, and nonconsensual harm. Such authority is derived from brute force and is hereby rejected;
• Each individual’s sole inherent legal obligation is to not initiate direct, proximate, and nonconsensual harm;
• Each individual is utterly unique, irreplaceable, and sacred; each individual can only be held responsible for one's own actions in success, failure, and harm because it is one's will alone that animates;
• Nature endows each individual with self-determination and the unalienable right to behave anyway one wishes without interference from others, so long as one does not initiate direct, proximate, and nonconsensual harm;
• Each individual’s will to live, express, worship, communicate, travel, cooperate, trade, own, use, dispose of one’s own of property, and to do/be/have in any of the infinite combinations one can afford to one's self is inviolable, so long as one does not initiate direct, proximate, and nonconsensual harm;
• Each individual may keep one's personal affairs private and free from search or surveillance to protect one's interests from unwanted interference.
• It is well shown that villains do not give notice before committing their felonious acts because surprise favors the initiator, as such, each individual may be armed as one pleases, when one pleases, where one pleases so as to be able to defend against those who attempt to initiate direct, proximate, and nonconsensual harm;
• The only rightful use of nonconsensual harm is to defend against initiated nonconsensual harm, or to restore victims of such harm by holding the initiators responsible; And only with the least amount of harm necessary to successfully defend or restore.
Holding these principles to be immutable, each of us commits to not initiating nonconsensual harm and to defending ourselves from those who try.

Forced equality = Tyranny

Tyranny + Tyranny = No Liberty!!

I think we should apply the principle of individual freedom as a math formula towards the liberal crowd, if there are less words, maybe it could make it harder for them to change the topic. Anyways, wishful thinking, it would be a cool bumper sticker though.....

kind people rock

ReWrite

#1. Each individual has a right to their life, property and body as long as they do not violate these same individual rights off others.

/The End. If you have to go past this one rule, then you've necessarily violated liberty to begin with. These liberals trying to craft liberty around the cornerstone of theft are complete and utter morons.

Touche!

well said

when will people learn?

I cannot think of one good cause that has not been used to steal freedoms and garner power and control, the least of which is the concept of freedom. The Neoliberals that now believe themselves to be the damage control pundits of this country are no more than brainwashed zombies. This is who this piece of shit was written for. I hope this desperate act of treason is an indication of last ditch schemes, rather than a brazen move forward.

though most things seem just to be a temperature gauge of what ignorance will comply with, and how many breathing , thinking patriots still exist.

People would rather continue to be fooled than admit that they have been fooled in the past.

Strange, there is no right to

Strange, there is no right to bear arms... maybe just an oversight.

Southern Agrarian

Exactly!!!

good one Ulfilas

.

Utter garbage.

Oh Wow.. what a moron.

lol, once you get to Article 22 all hell breaks loose.

lol @ Everyone has the right to rest and leisure, including reasonable limitation of working hours and periodic holidays with pay.

I guess jobs are now mandatory, but of course this violates the rights off the employer.

lol @ (1) Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.

(2) Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance. All children, whether born in or out of wedlock, shall enjoy the same social protection.

OF COURSE, THEY'LL HAVE TO VIOLATE INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS IN ORDER TO FUND THESE NOBLE PURSUITS BUT HEY, WHO'S KEEPING TRACK?

Mindless liberals man, mindless.

Haha, he wants to make education forced and compulsory and he's talking about individual rights! LOL this guy is a tool. Thanks for posting this, I can read and laugh for hours.

I noticed exactly the same thing
