Human Rights at Ground Level

Bloggers were encouraged to discuss Human Rights today

First, a few stories in the news about this topic. In no particular order
In: Ottawa
North Korea

To me human rights start at ground level :
- Show respect for others.
- Don't impose your well meaning values
- Give people a break !
- Leave God's work to God

Yeah not mind boggling stuff and certainly the issue of human rights is far more complicated . These are just my simple musings on the subject. My MS experiences have shown me on the negative side, how petty and small minded people can be, on the positive, how there is much good in others.
Keep on blogging.

Alright mom. You wanted me to post what I said today.

Humans have no rights. They are an illusion we create to feel warm and soft and secure in society. Rights are what we force into reality. In the world chaos is the natural order, and in a sense the "genetic imperative" is the only thing that matters. Everything else is just a fiction.

But what do I know.
