Facebook tells me that today is Human Rights Day. Rejoice?

SHARE

Not me.

I would support a day to advance liberty, but not one to advance equality, a malign idea from the American and French revolutions. Human rights are good if they are freedoms, but not if they are extensions of state power.

Googling I find that this day, previously unknown to me, is as I suspected, a creation of that ghastly body the UN. Human rights is a rephrasing of Rights of Man. In other words Jacobinism.

  2. The ideology of Human Rights is a weapon used by stronger states to destroy or subvert weaker states e.g. Serbia, Iraq, Syria, Belarus, now Hungary and Poland, who don’t conform to globalist liberal-democratic concept of rights i.e.
    1. the right to engage in degenerate consumerism freed from cultural and religious constraints.
    2. A system in which every sort of foreigner, criminal and mentally-defective deviant has the same amount of rights and as the most moral and successful citizen with impeccable ancestry.
    The root of the problem goes back further than Jacobinism and American revolutions all the way back to our adoption of Christianity. In Ancient Europe rights were derived from your relationship to the community. Following the importation of Christianity the concept of “rights” became a universal concept derived from the idea of each human having a soul equal to any other. This then culminated in the pompous Enlightenment idea of “natural rights” which Bentham called nonsense on stilts. In 1948 the fascist writer Maurice Bardeche predicted that the ideology of Human rights laid down at Nuremberg would inevitably lead to Europe’s mass colonisation by the non-European world since it repudiated the most precious right which is the right to live among your own kind in a settled society.

      It saddens me to have to agree with you. Christianity is admirable in many ways but it has some deadly flaws. Its universalism is one of the deadliest.

      It's become more dangerous as Christianity has become more and more feminised.
