RE: 60th Anniversary Tomorrow of The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights

"On December 10, 1948 the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights the full text of which appears in the following pages. Following this historic act the Assembly called upon all Member countries to publicize the text of the Declaration and 'to cause it to be disseminated, displayed, read and expounded principally in schools and other educational institutions, without distinction based on the political status of countries or territories.' "


Just a thought?

Michelle & Kevin:

Do you think it might help if "The Universal Declaration of Human Rights" (United Nations) was taught in our schools - as was originally envisaged and suggested in 1948? (Please see the "teaching" and "education" references to this point in the "Preamble" section of the document at ).

This question is partly prompted by the fact that tomorrow is the 60th Anniversary of "The Universal Declaration of Human Rights".

I often find myself wondering when (if ever) this hugely important subject is going to be taught to our children in our schools?

I also often wonder of course what has prevented its introduction up to now?

Sixty years seems to me to be a very long time to delay regarding such a core-issue matter for human society.

Anglo Norman guile
by Toirdelbach Mon Dec 08, 2008 08:56
Beware the Anglo Norman flair for guile -- which time and again, and again, has been grossly underestimated -- and which in addition to being highly successful (from their viewpoint) is also ruthless in the extreme, pitiless, and has no conscience.
Support it, or even tinker with it, and you support their endless cycles of social injustices and resulting armed conflicts: plus of course all the closely associated misery and death which has long been "part and parcel" of their now global social system.
