An Example Of A United Nations, My Cousin Vinnie Bullshit Clause
Here’s part of the Wiki entry on The Universal Declaration of Human Rights…
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a declaration adopted by the United Nations General Assembly (10 December 1948 at Palais de Chaillot, Paris). The Declaration arose directly from the experience of the Second World War and represents the first global expression of rights to which all human beings are inherently entitled. It consists of 30 articles which have been elaborated in subsequent international treaties, regional human rights instruments, national constitutions and laws.
So you, being a human being, are entitled to certain rights.
U.N. documents that are meant for public consumption are generally a bit wordy. I will take the liberty of cutting to the chase for with a summary in simple language. If you wish to check my interpretation, here is a link to the declaration at the UN website.
Here we go…..
Everyone is free.
Everyone is equal.
Everyone has the right to life, freedom and safety.
Equality before the law.
Everyone has the right to a lawyer.
No jail without cause.
Right to a fair trial.
Innocent until proven guilty.
No illegal search and seizure.
Freedom to travel.
Freedom to seek asylum in another country.
The right to belong to a country or to live in a different country.
The right to marry and have a family.
The right to own property.
Freedom of religion.
Freedom of speech.
Freedom to assemble.
The right to participate in the political process.
The right to social security.
The right to work for fair pay, in safety and to join a union.
The right to relax.
The right to have health care.
The right to education.
The right to share in culture.
No one can take away any of these rights.
Everything we just said is bullshit…thank you.
Now, in case you don’t feel like sifting through the entire document to see what I mean by the last bit there, I give you the exact wording of Article 29, Section 3…
These rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations.
That’s a beautifully written piece of sly, subtle tyranny right there. You get all of these rights unless it doesn’t suit our purposes.
If the U.N. decides you don’t suit their purposes, they can just send in some of their beloved Peacekeepers to relieve you of your rights.
Oh yeah, and by the way, notice that there is nothing in there about the right to bear arms either…even with the disclaimer.
