Life Transition: Human Rights

Commentary by Peter Shepherd
Human Rights
“We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” ~ Thomas Jefferson
As Benjamin Franklin said, “Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.” And Bob Marley: “Better to die fighting for freedom then be a prisoner all the days of your life.”
“Anonymity is a shield from the tyranny of the majority... It thus exemplifies the purpose behind the Bill of Rights, and of the First Amendment in particular: to protect unpopular individuals from retaliation - and their ideas from suppression - at the hand of an intolerant society.” ~ John Stevens (U.S. Supreme Court Justice)
Like Edward Snowden says, “Privacy is the foundation of all other rights. Arguing that you don’t care about privacy because you have nothing to hide is like arguing that you don’t care about free speech because you have nothing to say.”
“Home is the place where boys and girls first learn how to limit their wishes, abide by rules, and consider the rights and needs of others.” ~ Sidonie Gruenberg
Human rights and mutual respect are first learned at home and at school - though often they are instead trampled by dogmatic and intolerant parents and teachers, suppressive rules and bullying. And then that carries into the workplace and society.
Human Rights
“Respect for the rights of others means peace.” ~ Benito Juarez
But as Pancho Villa said, “There can never be peace in a world where one man has his belly full and another man is starving.”
“The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.” ~ M. Scott Peck
When you have nothing more to lose, when the old ways have arrived at a brick wall, it provides a kind of freedom: a period when you can finally afford to change, to look at things completely afresh, and indeed transform your life for the better. You don't have to identify with the past any longer. Instead, share your thoughts and work with others to take back your rights and realize your own ability to make powerful choices about who you are and how you live.

The World Says No to Surveillance - Edward Snowden

We are witnessing the emergence of a post-terror generation, one that rejects a worldview defined by a singular tragedy. For the first time since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, we see the outline of a politics that turns away from reaction and fear in favor of resilience and reason. As a society, we rediscover that the value of a right is not in what it hides, but in what it protects. Continues...

The Crusade on Intelligence - by Cattraknoff

It should come as no surprise to anyone that there is a great deal of injustice in our world; essentially everything is not as it should be; we humans do not act as we should. This is in our nature, according to philosophers and tyrants; our nature is to be narrow-minded and apathetic. But I for one do not believe that these actions are coded into every person. Granted, the potential for every person to be selfish is certainly there, as are the kernels of greed, corruption, etc. However, it need not be this way, and it certainly should not be, if we wish to have any hope of survival (and freedom, god forbid).

Needed: a New Age of Enlightenment ~ by Charlie Stross

This article analyzes the WTC tragedy and attempts to answer the crucial questions: How did we drift into this situation over a period of fifty or more years? What will happen if we don't deal with the root causes of the mess? What can we do to fix things (apart from fighting a war)? Continues...

Daring to be Yourself ~ by Peter Shepherd

Current events have demonstrated a tremendous desire on the behalf of perhaps the majority of people in the world for peace in their lives. They are no longer satisfied with the mentality of political conflict, which endangers economic progress and human rights and freedoms. But most importantly, I feel that many people are now aware that if we want peace in the world, first we need to make peace with our own lives. It's human nature that needs to change, and we are capable of making such a transformation. Continues...

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
