Human Rights



The only rights a human has are what we as humans have arbitrarily decided we should have. We aren’t born with any rights. Our rights depend on where we are born in this vast world. Some are much more fortunate than others. These rights have changed over time and will continue to change, and in many places throughout the centuries, these rights have been ignored. We don’t have a right to live on this planet although the vast majority seem to think so. It is a privilege, and the day may be coming when that privilege may be revoked with little or no warning. We think we have a right to happiness, but that is a fallacy. The game isn’t played on a level playing field. The rules can be very different. Some have little chance of finding happiness; it’s all about survival.
