The UN Declaration of Human Rights - A Sad Joke

The UN Declaration of human rights offers nothing in the furtherance of the goal of the realization of Freedom - not from State-Tyranny, nor slavery to the moneyed-Elites. 

Let us start with some basic tenets:

  • Freedom is having the choice to determine how we spend our life-time.
  • Within that choice is the inherent ability to choose what we produce to trade with others.  
  • Therefore, being "free" to auction the hours of our lives in exchange for permission to eat or to have a place to sleep is not Freedom.  

Some of the "Articles" of this document and commentary follow:

Article 4.
No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.

That sounds nice, but when we look around us in the world today, we find that "servitude" to Elites and Governments is the dominant form of human interaction. A definition of slavery would be helpful, but we can find its mis-definition in the context of other Articles in this document.

Article 17.
(1) Everyone has the right to own property alone as well as in association with others.
(2) No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his property.

The careful reader will note that the right "to own property" is not AT ALL the same as the "right to have your share of the Earth on which to live and prosper."  This Article leaves the majority of people, those without "money to buy property," with NO PROPERTY - a hollow right, indeed. 

Article 4, ostensibly prohibiting slavery, is therefore, null and void, as those Individuals without a share of the Earth's arable land (not to mention its other resources), lack even the means to produce their own food.  This leaves them in "servitude" to others for this "privilege."

The UN's implied mis-definition of slavery is further clarified by ...

Article 23.
(1) Everyone has the right to work, to free choice of employment, to just and favorable conditions of work and to protection against unemployment.

In other words, everyone has the "right" to be a slave, but to choose which moneyed-Elite master to whom they will serve at a particular time. This "right" is no gift to the slave, but merely a way to make the Humanstock slave-force easily transferable for varied forms of exploitation.  Anyone who has shed enough of their "educational conditioning" to become aware of the obvious fact that "jobs" are nothing less than "servitude in exchange for permission to simply exist" will find no comfort here.

With regard to the State ...

Article 15.
(1) Everyone has the right to a nationality.
(2) No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his nationality nor denied the right to change his nationality.

Article 21.
(1) Everyone has the right to take part in the government of his country, directly or through freely chosen representatives.

But no one has the "right" to be "free FROM the state" so that they may persue their own interests apart from its "Laws" and "Regulations." 

Even those enamored with the idea that "democratic states" could be "good" will note that within a system of information-dissemination wholly owned by the moneyed-Elites, known as the "Mainstream Media," where "campaign contributions" determine the relative-visibility of the available so-called "choices" of so-called "freely chosen representatives," it is clear that any "choices" made are, essentially, worthless. Choosing between a "whipping" and a "beating" is no choice at all.

Neither "Nationalization" nor "State Regulation" of the propaganda organs and political-financing systems would significantly improve this "state" of affairs. 

It is the function of Power-Over-Individuals by Violent Force, expressed inherently in the State by its self-proclaimed monopoly on the "justified" use of force, which makes the preservation of Elite-control of land and resources possible. This combination prevents any semblance of Liberty on Earth at the present time.

Article 13.
(1) Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each state.
(2) Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country.

We find no recognition of the obvious fact that the State is an artificial construct into which every person is involuntarily "born."  This is most clearly evidenced by the inconsistencies of state "borders" through history.  Without the "right to work" extending to the entire planet, one's servitude (in exchange for the privilege of a place to call "home" and to eat) is restricted to artificial geographical-area boundaries.   Ergo, we are not only deemed slaves to the moneyed-Elites of the planet, but slaves of a particular subset of these Elites, depending on where we happened to be born. 

This arrangement is merely a modern adaptation of traditional Feudalism, whereby "the serf belongs to the land which belongs to the Lord." The difference being, that to maximize the efficient use of slave-labor, a group of Lords, who just coincidentally occupy all important functionary positions within the State apparatus (or fund the "campaigns" of those who do) have agreed to "share" a collection of Humanstock of Slaves between them.

The process known as "Globalization" is merely the formulation of a cooperative system amenable to slave-abusing Elites from around the world, to formalize a unified, world-wide system of human exploitation.  The GATT treaties and the WTO provide the legal frameworks for this harmonization of the rules of Humanimal slave-extortion.  This process serves to further increase the efficiency of Humanstock-Labor Extraction beyond that afforded within semi-isolated "national" frameworks.

These Elites have also agreed to outsource, to the collective State, their responsibility for the maintenance of Their Serfs at times when they are not "useful" to production. Functionally, it is similar to the use of "insurance," in that a large group contribute to a pool which makes payments under certain conditions. Making the slaves, themselves, pay for this system via taxes on their wages adds to the bitter irony.  In another parallel to insurance, the system itself creates a massive bureaucracy allowing for extensive micro-management of Individual's lives.

This arrangement not only preserves the health of the Humanstock herd for future exploitation, but also performs the additional critical functions of preventing slave-uprisings (food-riots, in particular) and ingratiating the slaves to the Elite-controlled State. These responsibilities of the State are outlined in ...  

Article 22.
Everyone, as a member of society, has the right to social security and is entitled to realization, through national effort and international co-operation and in accordance with the organization and resources of each State, of the economic, social and cultural rights indispensable for his dignity and the free development of his personality.

The so-called "Dignity" of people who must sell their life-hours for the "privilege" of a place to sleep is laughable - and do they refer to a "personality"  molded by "forced" educational systems? More on that below.

Article 25.
(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.

Perhaps this should be re-phrased, "Thou Shalt Not Damage the Humanstock such that Other Masters cannot Exploit them in the Future."

(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.

This sub-article protects the "Breeding in Captivity" of the serfs, and is further "recognized" in ...

Article 16.
(3) The family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection by society and the State.

Again, the family's right to be FREE FROM the State is not considered; it does not exist in "UN-Speak."  This very concept of being free from the state has the status of Orwell's "unwords," as defined in his novel _1984_.

As every military officer is aware, those serving must be given a "break" from battle, or their performance will decline; this is also the case with slave-labor.  A greater "output" and "efficiency" of slave-exploitation can be achieved by including periods of "rest and leisure."  This is couched in terms of a generous offering to the Serf-slaves in ...

Article 24.
Everyone has the right to rest and leisure, including reasonable limitation of working hours and periodic holidays with pay.

And, lastly, to ensure the Calves of the Humanstock are "properly conditioned" to their roles as slaves ...

Article 26.
(1) Everyone has the right to education. Education shall be free, at least in the elementary and fundamental stages. Elementary education shall be compulsory. Technical and professional education shall be made generally available and higher education shall be equally accessible to all on the basis of merit.

Note the word "compulsory" - as in "non-voluntary" - as in "by force."  Lets re-write that for emphasis: "Every Slave-child shall be forced to undergo social conditioning and training to prepare them for a life of 'useful' servitude to the moneyed-Elites."  

I have left out some of the nicer sounding "rights" to which we are purported to have been blessed by this UN document, but lest anyone get the idea that ANY of these rights have ANY actual value, this jewel is included ...

Article 29.
(3) These rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations.

In other words, these are not "inalienable rights" - but only imaginary rights - as imaginary as government authority - and they only exist when and if the United Nations says they do.  If you really need these so-called "rights", but those in the UN think your exercise of them would be "contrary to the purposes ... of the UN," then They Do Not Exist For You.  

Clearly, this document is nothing but window dressing for oppression by the Tyranny of the State in the service of continued exploitation by the Moneyed Elites.  It merely reinforces the Elites "right" to "sell back to us" bits of our planet's bounty, in exchange for extraction of the precious time of our lives, and to use the State, whose existence is never to be questioned, as a means of "officiating" this tyrannical arrangement.
