Human Rights

In 1948 the United States signed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which states under 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.

(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.”

Housing as a human right has been reaffirmed in Article 11 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights, which the United States also signed in 1966.

Has anyone taken inventory lately?

    The UN’s “Universal Declaration of Human Rights” is a bad joke being played on the world by the capitalists. They pretend that their economic system can be made “humane” by passing a phony “human rights declaration” that has absolutely NO enforcement provisions in it. The UN’s “Universal Declaration of Human Rights” should be sent to the “Dead Letter Office”.
