Human rights for sale
‘Freedom from fear’ could be said to sum up the whole philosophy of human rights.
— Dag Hammarskjold, second UN Secretary General
America, like most advanced democracies, represents the ugly, uncivilised, uncouth and unabashed buying and selling of fundamental human rights despite the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments to the US Constitution that freed slaves, guaranteed them equal protection under the laws, and the right to vote, respectively.
Constitutional torpedoing has become very sophisticated when fear is subtly added and embedded.
Every right, claim, eligibility, entitlement, ability, and agility of an awakened mind is considered a putative liability when fundamental human rights are forced upon the bargaining table of constitutional readjustments. Politicians know that fear works miracles when they parade and prove that values and morals are for the weak, the meek and the enslaved.
