The UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights is immensely subjective. It speaks of lofty principles but refuses to define its terms, making it a great goal to work toward but a lousy set of criteria to try to enforce.
Example: "Article 1: All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood". Well, duh! It ends up meaning
such things as "All human beings have an equal right to bribe the court officials and be released if they have enough money", or have an equal right to worship Allah or those 5 official churches the People's Republic of China have approved, and an equal right to go to jail if they don't.
