Not many know about this but all nations once came together, and agreed on human
Now we know basic ones.
All children have the right to learn.
We know that, right? Well there are other ones.
These are the first 11:
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.They are endowed with
reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration,
without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion,
political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other
status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political,
jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person
belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other
limitation of sovereignty.
Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.
No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be
prohibited in all their forms.
No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or
Everyone has the right to recognition everywhere as a person before the law.
All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal
protection of the law. All are entitled to equal protection against any
discrimination in violation of this Declaration and against any incitement to such
Everyone has the right to an effective remedy by the competent national tribunals for
acts violating the fundamental rights granted him by the constitution or by law.
No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.
Everyone is entitled in full equality to a fair and public hearing by an independent

guarantees necessary for his defence.
(2) No one shall be held guilty of any penal offence on account of any act or
omission which did not constitute a penal offence, under national or international
law, at the time when it was committed. Nor shall a heavier penalty be imposed than
the one that was applicable at the time the penal offence was committed.
Now you think, so? What is your point?
We all know about Sudam Husane [Sp?]. Every year children died of starvation 300,000
just because of him. Do you think HE didn't eat plenty?
HE ate plenty, probably enough for every single kid under the age of seven
that died. [300,000 just as a recap]
Did HIS ARMY go unfed?
No. They ate just as much as he did I bet.
Islamic religion. There is fine line where religion and law have to seperate. They
cannot step over that boundary, and when it does all hell is set loose. Here's our
Read Article 4. Read Article 2. Don't get me wrong, if this bill was possible to act
within it would be nice, it would be perfect, it would solve our problems. Now
Islams, not saying I have anything against them, but everyday women and children are
Read Article 4 again. This says there shall be NO slavery. Then we
simply say Islams stop doing it, wait that's a religion! Read Article 2. The
important thing that protains to this idea is that everybody has freedom to believe
in whatever religion they like. But wait Read Article 4. No slavery. Read Article 2,
freedom of choice of religion. WAIT.
So what do we do to solve this constant question?
Speaking of this religion thing think about this. Say you are in a religion that
makes you do "evil" stuff. The law says "Don't kill." and "Don't Steal.". Now their
religion requires them to do all of these things that the law prohibits.
What do we do?
Now the US is not this fancy smancy perfectly innocent nation.
It says on an article that nobody should be subject to cruel punishment or treatment.
Yet we do this in the army to get info out of captured enemies. We do this to
prisoners. We do this all the time but when something happens to an American we raise
hell. What's the difference?
It says innocent until proven guilty.
Guy is accused of raping a 13 year old girl. He's 28 going on 29. Girl just remembers
a vaguely similiar description that fits him. Out all of the crummy guys the police
can bring in she picks him.
Now he has trials right and inbetween them he has a life to live. Everybody takes a
second look at him, crosses the street to the otherside, and moves away slightly as
he approaches them. Turns he's innocent. Nobody trusts him.
No so justified ehh?
Read Article 2.
It says nobody shall be discriminated/judged because of race, or where you have
lived, your name, etc.
Guy is from Iraq. They double check him because of this. Think he's a terrorist. He
isn't. But they check much more than they do anybody else.
Wars will stop when the US says we are in the wrong too. We aren't high and mighty.
This humans rights declaration needs to be lived by.
When will that happen? When will all of the nations come together without tearing out
the hearts of everybody else? You tell me.
