Human Rights Nonsense

Most of the different daily posts that appear on this blog are organized into so-called “blog series”. For example, there’s a series called human rights nonsense: as a passionate activist for human rights, I’m obliged to point to the ways in which the language of human rights is used to push nonsense. Human rights nonsense devalues the whole system of human rights, and has to be ridiculed mercilessly if we want to preserve what is good about human rights.
