Ethical human rights consigns UN's 'hidden collectivist agenda' to 'dust-bin' of history.

category international | rights, freedoms and repression | opinion/analysis author Thursday February 05, 2015 18:23author by Anthony Ravlich - Human Rights Council (New Zealand) Report this post to the editors

In my view, we are born to be great in God's image.

Ethical human rights is firmly based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights so removes the UN's 'hidden collectivist agenda' which, in my view, seeks to culturally cleanse the world of individual self-determination.

Ethical Human Rights Made Simple: ethical human rights is universal, for all, and based firmly on the Universal Declaration, which emphasizes individual rights so removes the UN's 'hidden collectivist agenda' (see Anthony Ravlich Google+) - in my view, it is a proper interpretation of the declaration and no one has ever disputed this since it was first outlined in my book in 2008.

In my view, once it gets into the mainstream media it will prove unbeatable unless the Universal Declaration is changed.

I consider the secular, liberal collectivists (see Anthony Ravlich Google+) have lost the intellectual battle and are just playing for time at other people's expense e.g. the young.
Rather than the prevailing mediocrity ethical human rights envisages a Great World made up of Great States which ensure ethical human rights for their people so individuals can achieve Greatness if they wish (in my view, we were born to be great because we are made in God's image). Compare the totalitarian One World Government that is presently planned which will keep people as dependent, 'silent', slaves (see Anthony Ravlich Google+).

The ethical approach to human rights, development, and globalization is as follows:

(1) Ethical human rights means everyone is ensured, at the very least, the core minimums of all the rights in the declaration which enables both survival with dignity (survival rights) plus the added dignity of self-help (self-help rights). Freedom requires BOTH the latter which should be sufficient to enable individual self-determination i.e. seeking of truth, dreams, creativity, entrepreneurship, reaching full potential and enabling dissent (by comparison the UN's 'hidden collectivist agenda' seeks to culturally cleanse the world of individual self-determination, and in my opinion, seeks to destroy the universal truth upon which the declaration is based which, in my view, also means eliminating God, The Universal Truth, and spirituality which I consider to be also a creative force).
In my view, without either survival or self-help rights or both an individual is enslaved. Higher levels of human rights need to be earned so no form of discrimination is permitted i.e. the deserving and the gifted must, at least, be seen to succeed.
Also, the poor should have a voice of their own in the mainstream media so they can influence the democratic majority;

(2) Ethical development is based on individual self-determination (see (1)) so the emphasis is on 'bottom-up' development i.e. small entrepreneurs, small/medium business rather than the Corporations i.e. the new ideas of the former will take society forward rather than the present nil growth of many States [i.e. the more creative western States] which indicates lack of development of human knowledge - in my view, humanity has a universe to discover and may have to live on other planets so the development of human knowledge is very important for our survival;

(3) Ethical globalization means all States have to abide by an ethical human rights 'bottom-line' (see (1) above) so there is fair competition without exploitation i.e. creative growth determines the competitive advantage between States not, as at present, the capacity to exploit a vast workforce.

(4) Ethical duties - everyone, including in associations, has duties to the community. For example, through the State everyone ensures that all have, at the very least, their core minimum human rights so there is always an opportunity to earn high levels of rights. While it is the State's primary duty to ensure ethical human rights for their own people where possible there is also a duty to the global community such as helping those States unable to provide ethical human rights for their people.

Despite all my attempts to have an open public debate with leadership, including at the UN and human rights organizations, they remain hiding in their offices - I am sure they realize they would lose and their collectivist dream of a world created in their image i.e. whereby the collective is everything and the individual nothing or a mere number, will collapse and consigned to the 'dust-bin' of history where, in my opinion, it belongs.
