On December 10, 1948, within the aftermath of World Battle II, the newly fashioned United Nations wished to make a daring assertion to counter all of the atrocities the world had simply witnessed.
The earlier decade had been nearly nonstop genocide and devastation introduced on by a Nazi doctrine of intolerance.
And so the UN drafted a first-ever Common Declaration of Human Rights in an effort to set a brand new tone for the longer term.
Within the very first article, for instance, the doc states:
“All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights… with out distinction of any form, equivalent to race, color, intercourse, language, faith, political or different opinion, nationwide or social origin, property, beginning or different standing.”
That is clearly a beautiful concept— race, gender, sexuality, and so on. ought to be irrelevant traits.
But in fashionable woke society, these are the ONLY traits that matter; it has turn into so ridiculous, the truth is, that woke leaders now speak brazenly about segregation— separate faculties, seperate dormatories, and so on. for black college students and white college students.
So this very primary human proper— to be handled as an individual, and never as a shade, has been thrown out the window. However the contradictions to the Common Declaration of Human Rights don’t cease there.
Article 12, for instance, states, “Nobody shall be subjected to arbitrary interference together with his privateness, household, house or correspondence, nor to assaults upon his honour and repute.”
In fact, this human proper doesn’t apply within the eyes of the Twitter mob, which sees match to destroy anybody’s life and repute for having a unique opinion.
Then there’s Article 13, which states, “1. Everybody has the precise to freedom of motion and residence inside the borders of every State. 2. Everybody has the precise to go away any nation, together with his personal, and to return to his nation.”
… until there’s a virus on the free with a 99% likelihood of survival.
Virtually each authorities on earth used Covid-19 as an excuse to lock residents of their houses, or require a legitimate excuse to journey greater than 5 kilometers from house. Many closed their borders and prevented individuals from leaving the nation.
A lot for freedom of motion.
Article 17 says, “Nobody shall be arbitrarily disadvantaged of his property.” However within the identify of Covid-19, it turned completely positive for a Colorado county, for instance, to ban “Non-resident owners” from their very own property.
(Additionally, civil asset forfeiture has been a direct affront to this proper to not be disadvantaged of your property, plus Article 11, “the precise to be presumed harmless till confirmed responsible.”)
Article 18 of the Declaration on Human Rights says “Everybody has the precise to freedom of thought, conscience and faith.”
This apparently didn’t apply to the Jewish inhabitants of New York Metropolis, which was restricted from attending synagogue and sending their children to non-public non secular faculties, additionally within the identify of Covid.
It additionally didn’t apply when the police confirmed up at church companies within the UK and Canada to close down mass on Easter Sunday.
Article 19 says, “Everybody has the precise to freedom of opinion and expression; this proper consists of freedom to carry opinions with out interference and to hunt, obtain and impart info and concepts by any media and no matter frontiers.”
However this primary human proper has turn into a whole farce.
Any mental dissent from the fashionable woke agenda is now thought of “hate speech”, which in lots of international locations is now a criminal offense.
Scotland is a good instance, the place authorities there have already made arrests in opposition to residents for sharing controversial, offensive memes.
Twitter, Fb, and Google now ensure that the improper concepts and knowledge are usually not imparted on their world platforms, even when their model of the ‘reality’ seems to be improper.
Six months in the past, anybody who thought Covid got here out of the Wuhan lab was a conspiracy theorist, and the concept was blocked from Fb. Now the censors have generously deemed it a reputable story.
Twitter not too long ago suspended a Spanish politician for “hate speech” for saying “a person can not get pregnant.”
YouTube (owned by Google) eliminated a panel dialogue between the Governor of Florida and 4 well-credentialed scientists for spreading “misinformation” on Covid-19.
Article 20 of the Common Declaration of Human Rights states, “Everybody has the precise to freedom of peaceable meeting and affiliation.”
This proper is simply selectively true. For those who’re a ‘largely peaceable’ protestor who seems like torching automobiles and looting a Nike retailer, then, positive, you’ve got the precise to peaceable meeting.
Nevertheless, in case you’ve tried protesting Covid lockdowns in Australia, otherwise you had been in Hong Kong over the weekend commemorating the Tianamen Sq. bloodbath, then… no, you don’t have any proper to protest.
Article 22 ensures individuals “the precise to social safety”. But in most Western international locations, and particularly the US, their Social Safety and public pension funds are bancrupt.
Article 23 ensures “the precise to work”. However this freedom has been changed by the precise to cower in concern whereas amassing free cash from the federal government.
Article 26 states “Mother and father have a previous proper to decide on the type of schooling that shall be given to their kids.”
However at this time, the federal government will indoctrinate your kids in Essential Race Idea and encourage children as younger as 6 to determine as both a sufferer or oppressor.
The ultimate article of the United Nations’ Common Declaration of Human Rights states that no authorities could do something “aimed on the destruction of any of the rights and freedoms set forth herein.”
But that’s precisely the purpose right here: governments have engaged within the willful destruction of our rights.
We’re not speaking about North Korea or Venezuela. The governments who’re trampling throughout these rights are the identical Western nations who defeated the Nazis, fashioned the UN, and drafted the Common Declaration of Human Rights to start with.
