What is the difference between Individual Rights and “human” rights?

Posted by mrfixit on December 3, 2010

There is a huge distinction and apparently it is not well understood.

Where, when and WHY did the use of the term “human” rights become common?  Well, it was with some who had no respect for the actual concept of INDIVIDUAL rights.

With “human rights” there is no limit on the force that can be used to provide or secure these “rights”.  A common phrase applies:  “A government big enough to give you all you need is big enough to take it all away” It always works that way, first the masses are deceived or seduced into a false promise of utopia – all their needs will be covered.  Somewhere on the path, often when it is too late they realize that the thing they value most is now gone:  their FREEDOM.

In order to PROVIDE positive rights, “rights” that demand providers, well at some point it is required that the providers be FORCED to provide, and the spreads around to all and we wake up as slaves to a government master, a government that is no longer responsive to the people, it becomes one that controls and drives the people and crushes any dissent.

This is the history of mankind, and we are repeating it yet again.

The UN declaration includes the specific language: “progressive measures”, well where might that have come from?  Yep, progressives!

Note also the use of Inalienable not Unalienable.  There is a difference!  Prior post on that:


Also, for the UN , you only have rights upon birth, I guess that means the first 10 months after conception you are only a few cells, not worthy of any rights!

The UN “human rights” declaration is not new; it has been around over 60 years.  It includes “rights” such as:

Article 22:  “Everyone, as a member of society, has the right to social security

Article 23:

 “Everyone has the right to work, to free choice of employment, to just and favourable conditions of work and to protection against unemployment.

Everyone who works has the right to just and favourable remuneration ensuring for himself and his family an existence worthy of human dignity, and supplemented, if necessary, by other means of social protection.

Article 24 

 Everyone has the right to rest and leisure, including reasonable limitation of working hours and periodic holidays with pay.

Article 25 

“Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.

“Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance. All children, whether born in or out of wedlock, shall enjoy the same social protection.

Article 26 

“Everyone has the right to education. Education shall be free, at least in the elementary and fundamental stages. Elementary education shall be compulsory. Technical and professional education shall be made generally available and higher education shall be equally accessible to all on the basis of merit.

“Education shall be directed to the full development of the human personality and to the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. It shall promote understanding, tolerance and friendship among all nations, racial or religious groups, and shall further the activities of the United Nations for the maintenance of peace.

Article 29 

“Everyone has duties to the community in which alone the free and full development of his personality is possible.

“In the exercise of his rights and freedoms, everyone shall be subject only to such limitations as are determined by law solely for the purpose of securing due recognition and respect for the rights and freedoms of others and of meeting the just requirements of morality, public order and the general welfare in a democratic society.

“These rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations.


Notice what the “progressive” thinks is important: protection of the criminals, not the victims of crimes!  Some justice is that…


So, let’s summarize these “rights”.  You are born, you must be provided basic means to prevent poverty, you must be educated for “free”, you must be given a job and paid sufficiently, or be supplemented to be fair, by someone else, children get SPECIAL rights and consideration (not specified), you must be provided PAY even when you perform no labor to EARN it, you must be given housing, food, clothing, medical care and you cannot be forced to (directly) PAY for it.  Your education MUST indoctrinate and teach a pro-UN agenda,

But, at the end YOU must… wait a second!  I thought these were “rights”, now they have become OBLIGATIONS, which translate into FORCED SERVICE, and to who?   Oh, yeah forced service to the STATE, to provide all the supposed “rights”.  And note the “full development of his personality” which means the most able must produce MORE so it can be distributed to those who produce less and by force of course!

So, how is this different than the Communist Collective?  Answer it is not really different.  You get all these “rights” by giving up your individual rights and FREEDOM, by working for the state and giving the fruits of your labor so that all can live in the great utopia of the collective.

This is a disaster, it NEVER works, will never work, unless you define a functional system as a tyrannical regime where the people are slaves to their government masters.

This so called declaration of “rights” is a prescription for tyranny.

Now, remember that inalienable rights can be surrendered by the individual, so all a regime needs do is say the people spoke via an election rigged or otherwise, and they then have no limitation on what they can do to the individual.  Unalienable means they are not negotiable, and not able to be forfeited even by the holder.  That is a big difference.

So, in general, a “human” right has become the new cover all term for the rights of the collective.  It is the Trojan horse to bring us under the new “communist like” system of elite “expert” rulers and serf citizens!

Individual rights are to EACH person, and to be genuine “natural” rights they cannot COMPEL anyone to act, or infringe on others compelling them to act on your behalf.  Your rights can not impose an infringement on the rights of others. The reason is clear, as soon as you compel a person by force to act, then you are destroying liberty, by definition!  It is futile to make everything a “right”, some things are privileges, and there is reason and need to qualify them as such.

Note the contrast, our Declaration and Constitution specifically places restrictions on what the government can do to you, but NEVER compels the government to act for you.  (You might say the military draft is an exception, but without defense of the Constitution and our system, there is no protection of the rights it was created to SECURE for us as individuals).  If it did, then the government becomes the master but forcing people to PROVIDE the services now mandated as rights.  The providers then have no rights, they have obligations and forced servitude to provide.  How is that freedom?  (Ironically to some extent that is EXACTLY how it works with military service!  Some citizen rights are put on hold to do the service of the nation to PROVIDE the national defense for others!  Expand healthcare as a right is to DRAFT doctors and nurses, drug companies, hospitals and take away their rights also, in service to the nation.  This must be LIMITED and the only place I think it is a must is with the military).

Resist this stuff, do your homework, educate others.  We will lose our real rights if we do not know them or know how to identify the deceptions taking place to lure us away from our liberty.

Almost forgot, this is what is being taught to your children, as recommended by the NEA:


(Look at Dec 10, Human Rights day, also note they thing thanksgiving is no longer a religious event!)


UN “human rights” farce!  The USA is their common enemy, and they are the real abusers!
