Commentary :: Human Rights
Gifted, very bright victims of cultural cleansing may seek accountability.

Some of the gifted, highly intelligent victims of the UN's and State's cultural cleansing of individual self-determination are likely to seek accountability.
Gifted, very bright victims of cultural cleansing may seek accountability

On 15 February 2015 posted the following on Anthony Ravlich Google+:

MY ARGUMENT, put briefly and simply, is that the UN’s ‘hidden collectivist agenda’ (see Anthony Ravlich Google+) driven by the ‘secular, liberal collectivists’ (political representatives sometimes called left-neoliberals) both at the UN and within countries, have been engaged in culturally cleansing the world of individual self-determination and, in my view, profoundly so, whereas ethical human rights, in accordance with the Universal Declaration, does virtually the opposite i.e. it emphasizes individual self-determination. If and when society is ‘turned around’ (you could say the world and States are presently upside down), and I expect it will be, some those gifted and highly intelligent individuals whose lives have been very seriously damaged are likely to seek accountability.

On 11 Feb 2015 I sought to discuss my recent article, ‘Message of Profound Importance to UN’, www.indymedia.nz/articles/3430 , with New Zealand’s Chief Human Rights Commissioner but have received no reply.
Because the letter contains important human rights truths and he failed to respond I have a duty to inform people.

Dear David Rutherford,

because I believe in God I would like to discuss a recent article, 'Message of Profound Importance to UN', at your convenience. Also, I am getting a little closer to completion of my book which holds many to account primarily for the cultural cleansing of individual self-determination which, in New Zealand' has, in my view, destroyed the 'hopes and dreams', and sometimes the lives, of very large numbers.
Also, I usually prefer to offer the opportunity of a 'face-to-face' meeting before I hold them to account and I do not think the NZ Human Rights Commission should be exempt from any such accountability.
I sent the above article to Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, but received no reply most likely because of what I see as the UN's 'hidden collectivist agenda' which perceives individuals like myself as The Problem as one respondent to the article on linkedin (see below), I thought honestly, stated - 'you ARE the problem' referring to myself.
But ethical human rights is firmly based on the Universal Declaration so what he is saying is that universal human rights truth is The Problem and he doesn't like being held to account..
I am hopeful of a 'break through' for ethical human rights in the not too distant future from America (see below) and perhaps religions e.g. the Mormons posted the article on their website [giving it prominence] (see, epiphanyday.com).
Also, a discussion between us could also explore ways of how ethical human rights can 'turn the country around' which Mitch McConnell, the presumptive leader of the Republicans said was necessary for America when the Republicans recently won a majority in the US Senate,
I look forward to your reply.


Michael Rugaard, Head of Secretariat at Danske Erhvervsakademier / Danish Business Academies stated:

Anthony,
There is nothing "collectivist" about keeping the eternal and useless religious squabbles and beliefs out of rational political debate. It comes from the Enlightenment, which was anything but collectivist. Everybody knows that.

Your thinking isn't straight - or perhaps you're just a cheap manipulator. Because which of the many competing "Universal Truth"s are you referring to? Let me guess - one of the many competing christian "Universal Truths". One of the reasons we need the UN in the first place is because of the violent competition between these "Universasl Truth"s.

In western societies you can believe whatever you want. Feel free to put your faith in any god(s), santa claus or the eastern bunny - or in one of the many ideologies fostered by human thought. Your beliefs, however, should never be imposed upon the rest of us, who may have other beliefs. That a belief is religious doesn't give it precedence to other beliefs. They are not a valid political arguments and should never be so in the free world. This is also pretty trivial.

For the first time in centuries we now have a situation (at least in some parts of the world) where I don't need to follow the "truths" of you or other people with their feet planted solidly in the deep blue sky. We have achieved this by focusing on the individual rather than on a (number of) religious collective(s).

The irony of it all is that the secularization, that you scorn, is the only way in which all religious people can be free to practice their religions when and where ever they want. But you probably don't really want that. You want to take the cheap and quick route to having your way by imposing your beliefs and "truths" on the rest of us by calling them "Universal". This is of course highly un-democratic and anti-western.

My friend - you ARE the problem.
