Human Rights? Which Rights?
The trouble with human rights is that they are themselves
politically motivated. Is there a human right to productive
employment? (I can't check - I'm living in China) I very much
doubt it bacause Human rights were drafted in capitalist
countries and a basic tennet of capitalism is to have a large pool
of unemployed to keep labor costs down.
Even Adam Smith (name?) - the father of modrn capitalist
theory - recognised that although in the interests of capitalism,
unemployment was not in the interests of society.
BTW. I live in China but am not a Comminust (neither is the
government here except in name - mercentile dictatorship
seems more accurate). The DS on HDSR stands for Democtatic
Socialist. I originate from the Australian continent (HDSR
doesn't oficially recognise national borders) but fled the region
to find work. (I noermally don't discuss politics - boring - but
my political views obviously alter my opinions on this subject so
should be noted for perspective reasons)
