Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 1948




TUCSON (A-P) —The subordination of nation-states (who engaged in two world wars in the early part of the twentieth century) to global growth interests (war in undeveloped areas good, but global war bad for business) may be marked by the founding of the United Nations, October 24, 1945 (year zero, making 2016, in the Corp Calendar, year 70 of our Ford). A gathering of the world's elite serving intelligentsia took three years to produce this zeitgeist document. It may well be as close to a cross section of SYSTEM thought in 1948 as could be imagined. [The translations are from one universe of discourse to another, from SYSTEMs speak to systems science speak, which was largely unknown in 1948.]

The first universal document laid the foundation for SYSTEM (global Euro-Sino Empire) rule:



Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 1948



Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world, [Political speak translated into reality speak: Dignity is claimed, equal and inalienable rights are asserted. Freedom is an illusion; justice and peace are as evaluated by each human.]

Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people, [Failure to agree or submit results in hominid aggression as humans naturally aspire to consume and dominate.]

Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law, [Make laws and accede to them (or not). All laws are oppressive and tyrannical to those who do not accede.]

Whereas it is essential to promote the development of friendly relations between nations, [Friendly relations between subSYSTEMs, aka corporations and nation-states, promotes essential consumption of planetary resources.]

Whereas the peoples of the United Nations have in the Charter reaffirmed their faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person and in the equal rights of men and women and have determined to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom, [Whereas blah is the blah of blah, we blah.]

Whereas Member States have pledged themselves to achieve, in co-operation with the United Nations, the promotion of universal respect for and observance of human rights and fundamental freedoms, [Empire building primates will be agreeable to get what they want.]

Whereas a common understanding of these rights and freedoms is of the greatest importance for the full realization of this pledge, [If all agree to a set of claims, the agreement will be agreeable.]

Now, Therefore THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY proclaims THIS UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction. [We the Supreme Primates of all Primates Declare that the Rights we agree to are Universal, and to be imposed universally on all. Human Rights allow humans to cooperate in Growing the Euro-Sino Empire.]

Article 1.

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood. [Humans are born with a genome in common and should consider getting along.]


Article 2.

Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty. [The gene and meme pool includes variations which can be exchanged, so humans are one species.]


Article 3.

Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person. [Humans assert "rights" as evaluated by each.]


Article 4.

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

Nor shall a heavier penalty be imposed than the one that was applicable at the time the penal offence was committed. [Punishment is for the specified offence.]

[People shall be helped, in all ways that can be gotten away with, to vote for one of the SYSTEM approved candidates, assuming more than one.]

Nothing in this Declaration may be interpreted as implying for any State, group or person any right to engage in any activity or to perform any act aimed at the destruction of any of the rights and freedoms set forth herein.

Undefined (undefinable?) feel-good words /number of usages: Right /33, Rights /28, Freedom /22, Free /7, Dignity /6 with other newspeak words (e.g. equality, justice, liberty) used less frequently. If not a privileged elite, you have the right to work (to be employed as a wage-slave/consumer) to serve the SYSTEM in freedom (you can choose how you will serve/buy/consume) and dignity (as otherwise your pathetic so-called life of quiet desperation would have no meaning). Are we talking 'human rights' or of the rights of drones in the Borg Collective?
