The basic idea of human rights is that each one of us, no matter who we are or where we are born, is entitled to the same basic rights and freedoms. That may sound straightforward enough, but it gets incredibly complicated as soon as anyone tries to put the idea into practice. What exactly are the basic human rights? Who gets to pick them? Who enforces them—and how? Benedetta Berti explores the subtleties of human rights.

  1. The universal declaration of human rights should be within the constitution of all states and should be the enforceable basis for all international law.

    That’s just what I think

    I also think some of the rights as stated in the current declaration should be edited to remove vague and persisting ambiguities and establish a more focused and concise consensus on what is acceptable and justified under human rights law and human rights protections.

  2. I am a Targeted Individual and my human rights are being violated here in the US. I was born and raised in the US and I am stalked everywhere I go. I am remotely tortured with radio frequency directed energy electromagnetic microwave synthetic telepathy military grade weaponry. My fellow American citizens are responsible for doing this to me since 2012. I am an American citizen but I am not free. I am remotely tortured daily.
